Absolutely love the craftsmanship with this custom piece. Swords of Northshire was wonderful to communicate with. Always very timely and extremely accommodating. Listened to every detail I was looking for, and did their best to make my dream (and the recipient of this sword's dream) come true. I would and will definitely be back again to re-order another in the future.

Impressed by their professional approach. They were quick to respond to my questions and give offers of assistance. The custom made Katana was a true beauty and I am very satisfied with every aspect of my dealings with them. I can highly recommend Swords of Northshire to anyone seeking a finely crafted excellent quality sword for a very reasonable price.

Our son was absolutely speechless when he unwrapped the sword. He loves it. We needed a rush build and the sword came on time. It looks very elegant-well made with handsome parts. Also, customer service was very helpful. Thank you very much.
I am extremely satisfied with Swords of Northshire. Aside from my custom katana being absolutely beautiful and well made, their customer service is outstanding. They accommodated me at every step. My second custom katana is in the mail now! Can't recommend them enough, and will certainly be doing more business in the future.

Japanese knives were typically called tantos and could be used in close-quarters combat, martial arts, ceremonial acts, or in modern times, as tactical knives. The Japanese tanto knife came about during the Heian period in feudal Japan. It was created primarily as a stabbing weapon but the tanto blade could also be used for slashing. It was worn mostly by samurai but sometimes women wore them in their obi for self-defense. During the Kamakura period, tanto blades were crafted to be more aesthetically pleasing and gained popularity.
