This was my first purchase from Swords of Northshire, and I have to say, I'm very impressed. The communication was amazing and they indulged every request I made. Any questions I had throughout the process were answered swiftly and clearly, and when the sword finally arrived, I was in love. When Swords of Northshire says they try to exceed expectations, they mean it. The particular blade I had made was a 9260 spring steel dotanuki, sharpened with niku. Some of my requests were out of the ordinary, and they answered them either in craftsmanship or in words. My experience with this company has been great, and I hope to do business again in the future.
Where do I even begin I bought this as a birthday present for myself I went through each and every menu meticulously trying to find koi representations to match with my birth sign Pisces and I was not disappointed every step of the way from the brown leather wrap to the gold koi underneath them to the black handguard with the gold koi on it I was able to put it together just the way that I wanted it they kept in contact with me the whole way and even sent me pictures of the finished product to make sure I liked the way it looked all put together and when I got it it was so securely wrapped that it came out of the packaging in perfect Mint Museum quality I couldn't be happier and I definitely want to build more swords with this site because one day I'm going to save up enough money to get that $3,000 one
The service from Swords of Northshire is excellent and the product is even better and delivery was very quick. The sword has great balance and is very well made and sharp. Thank you Swords of Northshire for a wonderful product and I will be buying again from you guys.
This was the first sword that I bought from Swords of Northshire. I ordered the 1095 high carbon steel and the blade was absolutely perfect. Great attention to detail with the polishing and etching of the Hamon. The sword fit in the scabbard tightly so much so that you can turn it upside down and the sword won’t fall out. The wrapping on the handle was extremely tight, I wasn’t able to move it with my fingers. After receiving it I immediately put in an order for another sword from this company.
My daughter received her blackbelt in martial arts earlier this month. The sword we purchased was a custom design we put together based on her desires. The anticipation was great and I was very pleased with the swords construction. My daughter expressed her appreciation for the craftsmanship for her sword which she is now very interested in learning to use. I have four other daughters testing for their blackbelt soon, with that said I will be ordering swords for each of them in the near future from Swords of Northshire. Thank you
