Nice blade.The piece that I got exactly what I ordered.The shipping was ok.I purchassed this sword for decorative purposes only,so I haven't used it to cut anything but paper,but it looks solide and it's sharp.
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
As my first katana I absolutely love it you can really feel the craftsmanship in the blade and I have a very positive feeling when I hold it I will be definitely buying from you guys again.
