This is a well-made folded steel Shirasaya, following the traditional Japanese process. The blade is very sharp and folded 13 times resulting in 8,192 layers. The visible grain pattern on the blade comes from folding the blade repeatedly during forging. The blade is then heat-treated, tempered, and oil quenched to achieve optimal levels of flexibility and hardness. Finally, the blade is hand polished with multiple grades of sharpening stones which makes the surface of the blade reflective like a mirror. It comes with a natural huali wood saya with matching handle. The full tang is secured into the handle with two buffalo horn mekugi pegs. It is a very good choice for Dojo students, gifts, cutting practice, and display. The sword is strong enough to cut through bamboo yet sharp enough to slice paper. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.

Great service and quick delivery. Blade looks great, will have to go and cut through some bamboo to get a better feel overall. Sheath is a bit wobbly hopefully doesn't get too loose over time. Great value for the price.

I made a wooden katana for a history project in school, and I wanted to find a high-quality, cost-effective sword that was aesthetically simple and similar to the one I made. A friend recommended Swords of Northshire, and I found this shirasaya on the website. The sword was packaged very securely for international shipping to the US (I can even use the same packaging if I ever need to transport it long distance again). They also sought customer feedback and kept us informed every step of the way, from making the sword to shipping it (customer service is excellent). The finished product is beautiful (both the wood and blade) and well-cared for. The blade came oiled and encased in a plastic wrap to protect the blade from moisture and the saya from oil. I am extremely satisfied with the product and would recommend the company to other friends looking for a reputable company that sells high-quality swords for a good price.

Pretty solid shirasaya. The blade is a high quality craft and the over all sword is well constructed, but after a couple of re-sheathings, the blade doesn't stay tight in the sheath and wobbles out easily. It was also not as sharp as I was hoping for, but I'd assume for $240 it's a good edge... It has JUST enough edge to cut through smaller bamboo. Over all it was a good purchase.
