This Martial Arts Katana offers great quality at a reasonable price. Featuring our hand forged and polished 1060 carbon steel blade, designed for optimal balance and handling. This sword is a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. Our steel blades have been designed from the ground up, to offer perfect balance for regular Iaido & Kenjutsu use. The blade is unsharpened by default, and the customer can opt for free sharpening service. The sword comes equipped with a black matte hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, alloy fittings, genuine same' (rayskin) and silk wrapped tsuka (handle). The Katana is well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.

I love this sword! It's very high quality and definitely worth the money. Customer service was amazing and replied to every question in under 24 hours. You tell that each and every detail was considered and handles with care. One thing to a aware of though is that at first pulling the sword out of the scabbard was a little tough. I was very impressed and would definitely buy again.

I am very impressed with this sword. I bought it as a birthday present for my son and having seen its quality and level of finish I plan to order a sword from North shire for myself to use. The owner responds to questions very quickly and is very helpful. The options available are quite extraordinary. and the time from order to receipt was just fantastic. It was just over 1 week from planning the order to receiving it in Australia.

This is a great sword. The hamon can either be acid etched or left off, I chose to have it left off. This is a great sword for practicing forms with or for Iaido.
