Swords of Northshire is the best option for a beginner who wants to buy a strong, sturdy blade that can hold up to some use, but is still beautiful enough to use as a piece in a collection. The customer service is AMAZING, I got an answer to emails in less than 24 hours, and the level of customization can satisfy anyones wishes. When I ordered my custom katana I asked how I could get a different color of ito than the ones listed as options, and if I could have the engraving to be on the opposite side of the blade than the standard. All I had to do was put my requests in the comments section during checkout and they did it. It is also worth mentioning that on the handle everything is very tight and secure, I can't move the ito wrap AT ALL. Again, blown away by customer service and the quality of the blade, this is exactly the sword I wanted, and it is more than worth the money. I would like to point out that I am a very skeptical buyer and took about two weeks before I finally decided to buy the sword, so for all you skeptical buyers out there, THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT! Thank you again Swords of Northshire.

Sword is gorgeous. Exactly what I envisioned and had in mind. Also, love the fact if you want further customization you can email and don't have to wait for days for a response. You get one swiftly. And, the fact that I was emailed pictures of the sword is definitely a plus. Loved my sword when I saw the pictures and fell in love when I got to hold my sword in my hands. Couldn't ask for a better customization. I will definitely and actually have already recommended this company to others. Will definitely be purchasing more from here.

I have now purchased 2 swords from Swords of Northshire and I have only praise for the company & the product. Customer service was amazing as my saya was damaged in shipping and without hesitation the folks at Swords of Northshire replaced it quickly. I have done some cutting tests with my beautiful gyaku kobuse blade and its nothing short of spectacular. I would recommend anyone looking for a high quality, functional, beautiful samurai sword that they go with Swords of Northshire. Amazing craftsmanship and quality for a reasonable price.
