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.

The quality in craftsmanship of the sword I had custom made is impeccable. The materials are beautiful. The staff were always available when needed and very informative.

Iaido / Iaito Swords

Iaido / Iaito Swords

Designed to be perfectly balanced for iaido and kenjutsu kata forms along with other Japanese sword martial arts, our iaito swords offer a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. After all, the purpose of training with an iaito is so you'll be ready to use a proper steel shinken when the time comes. Hardened carbon steel iaido swords are made with better balance and greater durability. Whether katana or wakizashi, you'll find many 1060 high carbon steel blade swords for sale in this section, and the reason is simple; 1060 steel offers an excellent compromise between hardness and durability, and it's low weight puts less stress on your wrist when practicing iai forms.

Each iaito sword model comes with a bo-hi (blood groove or fuller), which helps reduce weight and also guides you in your training with the audible Tachi-Kaze wind sound it creates. Each sword also has the option to be either unsharpened (Iaito) for iaido practice or sharpened (Shinken) for functional use, so when you're ready to move on to a shinken you can come back and get the same sword with a sharpened edge for tameshigiri. We offer free shipping to USA, UK, Canada, and Australia along with all of Europe and most other countries.
