This shopping experience for my Nagimaki Katana sword by far exceeded my greatest expectations. I sense self-defense may very well come down to the basics. This is my reason for purchasing such a masterclass of artistic expression placed upon the superb quality and craftsmanship for this very sharp, and authentically designed sword. I prefer the Asian swords over American swords simply because they are individually made and not mass produced for corporate greed, but handmade with a kind of honorable tradition. I am so very pleased with SwordsofNorthshire. I will be back again for more. Awesome job people.

I ordered the Nagimaki katana and have to say it exceeded my expectations. The quality of the work was great. The balance, sharpness of the blade and rayskin. Everything was great. The sales staff kept me up to date through out the whole process including sending photos for my acceptance. I would purchase from them again without hesitation. If your looking for a 5 star product this is your company.

I believe that in these days a household needs a hunting rifle, a shotgun, a self-defense pistol and when government intervention prevents the manufacture and sale of ammunition I believe citizens need to acquire other sources of self defense such as bows and arrows and swords. There are many reasons for buying a sword and I had enough reasons to look for one of the best and I mean world class originations. I was amazingly lucky enough to have come across swordsofnorthshire.com. I looked at all their offerings on a well organized web site, which allowed me to design my own Samurai sword; no stumbling blocks, just straight ahead pleasure. Within a week or more I had photographs sent to me of the now finished beautiful Samurai sword and how it looked and "Did I approve and want it shipped". Did I ever. The photos were so beautiful I anticipated it's delivery every day. When I received this sword it was truly beyond all my expectations. So perfectly sharpened and well balanced. The scabbard and handle, I am using English words to describe Japanese terms, were perfect, the point of the sword was reinforced and shaped to perfection; the length of the sword is all anyone would ever need. The handle can be gripped as a baseball bat and swung as going for a home run. This sword looks to be able to cut through most anything which to me is what I spent my money on. I consider this purchase worth every penny. I could say more exciting descriptions about this sword but I think I will let you discover them for yourself.

I am very satisfied with this sword. Bryce is always very helpful and prompt in his email correspondence, and this time around was no exception. While I didn't do anything too over-the-top in customizing this nagamaki, all the changes I did make were done exactly as I requested. For anyone unfamiliar with how swords of northshire works, you can change all the fittings, colors, steel type, and dimensions of the sword, and so far I've had no issues in getting the customizations that I want. This nagamaki is "tough" and feels very solid. Would recommend to anyone looking for a somewhat larger sword.

This is a new site for me and I wanted to see what kind of quality their swords were. The level was really good for the price all the fittings are tight and aligned. No space left between the habaki and mune Ito tight rayskin on saya perfect seamless very impressed not easy takes time and care. Edge was almost perfect the last centimeter on the kissaki is a little misaligned but that is the hardest part to polish still a great polish job. The blade is sharp cuts through 2 rolled straw Beach mats like butter menuki are a little bit big but nice love butterfly tsuba overall a great sword with great customer service. Great job to all of them involved in the construction of the sword thanks for your hard work keep it up.
