Absolutely love the craftsmanship with this custom piece. Swords of Northshire was wonderful to communicate with. Always very timely and extremely accommodating. Listened to every detail I was looking for, and did their best to make my dream (and the recipient of this sword's dream) come true. I would and will definitely be back again to re-order another in the future.

From the first moment I became interested in purchasing one of their swords I was impressed by their professional approach. They were quick to respond to my questions and give offers of assistance. The custom made Katana was a true beauty and I am very satisfied with every aspect of my dealings with them. I can highly recommend Swords of Northshire to anyone seeking a finely crafted excellent quality sword for a very reasonable price and expect that I will be doing more business with them in the future.

Our son was absolutely speechless when he unwrapped the sword. He loves it. We needed a rush build and the sword came on time. It looks very elegant-well made with handsome parts. Also, customer service was very helpful. Thank you very much.

I am extremely satisfied with Swords of Northshire. Aside from my custom katana being absolutely beautiful and well made, their customer service is outstanding. They accommodated me at every step. My second custom katana is in the mail now! Can't recommend them enough, and will certainly be doing more business in the future.

Clay Tempered

Clay tempering is perhaps one of the most skilled artforms of sword making. Through rapid heating and cooling the blade becomes extremely hard, yet fragile. Clay tempering infused into the blade, allows for a slower cool down process, ensuring the blade remains razor sharp, while key parts of the blade remain rigid and flexible. Passed down from generations by the Samurai, a Clay Tempered Sword is a testament to precision, art, and ingenuity.
