1st of all I wanted to give a big thanks to Bryce for making the sword happen. I changed my mind on a few things after ordering, and then my daughter wanted ALOT changed. Bryce kept in contact through and through and the changes were actually made about 1 week after the order was placed. The shipping was actually quite fast and the sword is put together very well. Everything is tight and the blade is perfect. It was packaged really well and already choji oiled up when I received it. I looked upon a lot of sites and i am def glad I chose this one. I will be purchasing more from Bryce and his site in the future, and would easily and def recommend to anybody looking for a katana or anything else on this site. Great customer service, great katana, thank you so much Bryce. We will talk again in the near future without a doubt.
had a wakizashi made by swords of northshire, I am very impressed with how fast it all came together, and got it 2 weeks after I placed order and I live in australia. very happy with the quality of blade and construction. will buy another one soon. thanks very much
Orderd a custom katana with my own mesurements: Blade 30" , Tsuka 14" , Sori 0,8" , no bohi , and rayskinwraped saya .
I must say that I´m realy happy with my sword. All measurements were as I wanted , except for sori , wich was a little bit bigger ( 0,9" ) , and that is next to nothing in my book.
The sword feels god in my hand and was lighter than I expected ( 1.26 kg )
All in all, I´m impressed with the sword and would absolutely recommend Swords of Northshire
Sword is awesome ! Being a Sikh, sword is an article of my faith, I keep wearing a sword (small version all the time and longer one on special occasions). I own a dozen swords of different designs and lengths (all got made from India). Customized sword from Northshire is outstanding among all. Sword is a constant reminder for a Sikh (Khalsa) to keep mind sharp and shining. Northshire swords are super sharp and shining and of course blade quality is just perfect. I wear it with pride. It is attractive, sharp, shining, best quality and affordable. Thank you and keep doing the awesome Swords
I ordered a custom katana with a blade length of 81.8 cm. When I got it out of the box, I tested it out by practicing ia. No rattle when returning to the saya. I have an iato custom made from Japan that doesn't have the tight fit that Sword of Northshire custom made katana has. Thanks again!
