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.

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.

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.

Folded Damascus Steel

Folded Damascus Steel

Folded steel blades, commonly referred to as Damascus steel or pattern-welded steel, are made by hammering the steel flat and folding it over itself repeatedly to create several thousand layers of steel. Most of our Damascus steel swords are folded 13 times, creating 8,192 layers. 

 

Folding was developed in feudal Japan due to the impure metals that were most often used in blacksmithing. The tamahagane needed to be folded over and over again to remove impurities and even out the carbon content of the steel. Today’s modern steel is pure, and folding is only done for tradition's sake or for the aesthetically pleasing flowing grain pattern it creates on the blade.

When you explore our collection of Damascus swords for sale, you’ll find that we carry a large range of folded swords, including katanas and ninja swords.
