This Nagamaki sword is made of 1095 high carbon steel with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very unique sword with a structure that is a mix between a Katana and Naginata, with a Unokubi-Zukuri blade shape. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities making the blade strong and flexible. The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with a black lacquered hardwood saya with rayskin wrap and buffalo horn koiguchi, silk sageo/ito, genuine same' (rayskin) and premium iron fittings. The tang is secured with two bamboo mekugi and features a mei (signature). It is a very good choice for dojo and iaido use, gifts, cutting practice, display, and collection. It is durable enough for tameshigiri, bamboo, bones, iron wire, etc.

Absolutely pleased with my purchase,My first Nagamaki Hybrid. Very sharp,excellent craftsmanship on the whole sword, i wish i would have gone all the way , with a full stingray saya, in red, and gray. Also everything is custom, length, clay , and folding, colors, hardware, engraving, the materials that the sword is made of, everything can be custom, price is fair ,pending what you customize. I'm already saving for the next two swords, i will be coming back for more.

This thing is a beast. The blade has more girth than a regular katana and just feels really beefy. I love the huge tsuka, if you play with katanas alot you will have to learn new swings with this longer handle. The blade has a cool geometry that cannot be shown in pictures, the spine tapers about halfway up and then let's back out at the tip. Tsuka put together good as always with northshire swords and the rayskin I got is higher quality than other sub $300 swords I've gotten here (as expected). Keep in mind that the blade is wider towards the tip so it's impossible for the sword to fit in a saya as tight as a katana does. They did a really good job fitting the saya but if you hold it upside down the sword will fall out (again because of the blade shape this is unavoidable) Is it worth? Yes. Probably my favorite now in my collection of about 15

This sword is beautiful. It's craftsmanship is comparable to very expensive swords. All fittings are tight and looks well made. The blade is scary sharp. I ordered the light cutting sharpness and I am very pleased. The Nagimaki style blade looks like a normal katana but with a wider cutting end. It looks amazing. The handle is longer than normal but it makes it easier to maneuver. The sword feels lighter than my other 1060 katana. It took about 4 weeks to make I think. Once completed, I received an email with detailed pictures. They asked me if it was up to my approval. Then was shipped and arrived at my door very quickly. The sword bag that came with it is made of silk and is very pretty. I highly recommend this sword to anyone looking for a great sword that is not too expensive.

a:2:{s:7:"content";s:3491:"I would like to start by saying that I have been extremely pleased with the Nagamaki I purchased from Swords of Northshire. I made a short video review, linked at the bottom, showing the sword and testing it on a piece of Mugen Dachi omote, for all those who would prefer to not read a long review; however, I wanted to leave a more thorough review for any interested in the buying experience as a whole. \r\n\r\nI started the process of buying a sword by contacting Swords of Northshire about a few questions I had regarding customization options. They were very prompt in replying to my questions and provided useful information. From there, I was able to purchase the Nagamaki and then customize the length as well as having it clay tempered. As many other reviewers have noted, you can customize almost every aspect of the sword. Several of the customization options that are not listed cost extra, but Swords of Northshire does an excellent job tailoring swords to fit the individual. \r\n\r\nOnce ordered the Swords of Northshire representative, Bryce, sent a few other customization options then they began work on the sword. This part of the process took a little bit longer than I initially expected; however, due to the amount of custom options that I chose two months from start to finish is really quite reasonable. Again, they were always prompt to answer any questions I had throughout the process and then sent pictures of the finished product before it shipped.\r\n\r\nThe shipping was quick and the sword arrived in good shape. Upon inspection there were a couple spots on the spine that appeared to have not received the same mirror polish as the rest of the blade as well as a few tool marks on the tsuba, but those were of little concern and struck me as more indicative of a hand crafted sword then any actual flaws. The sword was made to the dimensions I had requested and had a very clear hamon from the clay tempering process. The tsukamaki was done well and the sword fit tightly in the saya. The blade was quite sharp and is made rather uniquely as a cross between a katana and naginata, as mentioned in the swords description. The main noteworthy aspects that differentiate this from a katana, besides the size, are the blade shape and the kissaki or tip of the sword. The blade shape is made in what they refer to as Unokubi-Zukuri which can be seen by observing how the spine gets thinner near the middle of the blade then thicker at the tip. The kissaki is also different, particularly because it is not well defined and lacks the yokote that would usually distinguish the kissaki from the rest of the blade. That aspect is presumably where the naginata influence comes from. Although I was initially worried about the thin spine being susceptible to bending, after testing it out it did not appear to impact the swords performance in any negative way. In fact, it may have even improved it some by reducing the friction on the blade as it passes through the target.\r\n\r\nAll said, the sword functions well. As mentioned before, even with my remedial skills this sword easily cut through a piece of tatami omote and was not damaged or even scratched. All the fittings and the tsukamaki stayed tight after repeated cutting. I have been very impressed with Swords of Northshire from start to finish, but after receiving this sword I can say I will definitely be looking to buy from them again.\r\n\r\n(Link to the video mentioned): https://youtu.be/Pt6B02gZ-X4 ";s:6:"images";a:0:{}}

I've been collecting swords over the last decade and Swords of Northshire katana are exceptional quality. I'm a martial artist who trains with swords daily, and I've actually ordered multiple swords from SON as I didn't want to cut bamboo or tatami with them - not because of concerns with poor quality, BUT, because the blades are so "sweet." With the mirror finish, this sword felt more like a practice sword than something I wanted to cut with - it was just too beautiful. I've since ordered the "deep sori" katana and once again I really like the fit, finish, and overall quality of the blade, wrap, and "furniture." I've bought swords from Bugei, Hanwei, and many others - these are exceptional cutters and stunning quality.
