If you’ve been hunting for a high quality, colorful folded steel sword that’s made following an ancient traditional Japanese swordsmithing process, the dragon katana from Swords of Northshire is the blade for you. After being folded 13 times, the dragon katana in red has over 8,000 layers. Once it’s been sharpened, the blade is then etched with an oxidation process to imbue its surface with the black and red hues.

Dragon Katana Details

There are three different color variations on the blade: black, red, and a fusion of the two. The completed dragon katana sword also comes with all the appropriate accessories in the color of your choice including:

  • A Lacquered Hardwood Saya (Scabbard)

  • Silk Sageo (Sheath Wrap)

  • Silk Ito (Handle Wrap)

  • Genuine Same’gawa (Rayskin Underwrap)

  • Brass Fittings

The tang is secured to the handle with two bamboo mekugi.

Durable enough for dojo students to practice cutting tameshigiri and bamboo, the dragon katana is the perfect choice for gifts and ceremonies. Each sword is individually handmade to order, so there will be some slight variation from sword to sword.

We pride ourselves on our top-notch customer service. We’re in direct contact with you regarding your order from start to finish. We also send pictures of the finished sword for your approval (and excitement!) before shipping. Other companies may accept orders and rush to fulfill them as soon as possible, whereas all of our swords are hand-forged and made to order by master smiths using the time-honored traditional Japanese & Chinese techniques. These swords are not fashioned on an assembly line; each is crafted with the care & respect the heritage deserves.

We refer to Japanese Quality to emphasize the difference from swords that are Made in China and of low quality & mass produced. All of our swords are fully handmade-to-order in the traditional way they have been forged for many generations. Many Longquan swordsmiths received their knowledge directly from Japanese forges; there is a rich history of information sharing between the two cultures. In these modern times, a Japanese Katana and a Longquan Katana are functionally the same.

Forever guarantee: We stand behind the quality of our swords. After your sword is created at the forge, we will send you pictures and will only ship after your approval. If at any time you have issues with the craftsmanship of your sword, please reach out to us and we will do our best to make things right.

Unless indicated otherwise, every sword is hand-forged and made-to-order for a high-quality & unique product created for you. This intricate process takes 3-4 weeks to complete. We’ll send pictures of your sword by email for confirmation (please whitelist sales@swordsofnorthshire.com to make sure you get our email). Tanto and wakizashi swords usually take around 4 weeks. Highly customized swords such as blades of a custom length or custom painted scabbards will typically take 4-5 weeks. For most orders, we estimate 4-6 weeks from the time the order is submitted to when you receive it. If you need a sword by a specific date or within a shorter time frame, contact us and we can see about prioritizing your order.

We ship to anywhere in the United States for free! For all other countries, we offer a flat shipping rate of $19.

Customers are responsible for customs taxes & duties.

If what you need done is more complex and might cost extra, please contact us with your request.
