Buying my custom sword from Swords of Northshire was a fun and exciting experience! Choosing from the different options offered as well as having a visual representation of the sword gave me the satisfaction of making my own personal sword suited for my own taste. When my sword arrived, everything came in perfect condition and exceeded my expectations. From previous experiences of buying swords from other vendors, I always check the blade and fittings of the sword. Swords of Northshire has one of the best build qualities I have seen: everything from the ito to the fuchi & kashira, to the blade itself scream attention to detail and quality construction. The ito is tightly wrapped with no loose spots, the habaki / seppa as well as the tsuba are fitted perfectly that the blade will fit in the saya perfectly without coming out. The blade is forged very nicely and won't disappoint. Having the ability to choose what hamon the blade can have adds to the personal customization. I chose a red saya with a black sageo and all I have to say is the saya is very well constructed with thick walls. If you're looking for a sword that is reflection of yourself with amazing build quality and at a great price, Swords of Northshire is the place to go. So, what are you waiting for, go ahead and start creating that sword that you always wanted!

I had been searching the web for months for a Iaito that I could fully customize and was within my price range. Then I came upon "Swords of Northshire".... Look no further! I've been very pleased not only with the several options available but the customer service is top notch! I had several questions when choosing options and received a reply the same day every time! My sword looks great and I've received several compliments on it from fellow practitioners. Everything fits securely together, the Ito is wrapped very tightly, and the entire sword looks amazing. I would highly recommend this site and will be buying from them again in the future!
