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.

From the first moment I became interested in purchasing one of their swords I was 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 and expect that I will be doing more business with them in the future.

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.

Samurai Swords

The samurai sword dates back to the Japanese Edo Period and as far back as the Kamakura Period. The distinctive curved blade and long grip was designed as a two-handed sword and became the symbol of the samurai class. It was traditionally made with tamahagane steel that sword smiths would fold and craft into a curved sword. During the forging process, a hamon unique to the sword smith was formed and highlighted when the blade was polished. The samurai sword was also used in martial arts and still is today. The samurai katana is used in training in a variety of martial arts, including iaido.

Our samurai swords are made in the famed sword-smith town of Longquan in the mountains of Qinxi from an ongoing tradition that’s lasted 2,600 years. Each sword is carefully crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail using traditional hand forging methods. We use high-grade steel and durable materials for all our swords, creating strong and beautiful works of art. The samurai sword is drenched in traditions of honor, pride, and power. We have a wide selection of samurai swords, including odachi and wakizashi, or you can create your own custom sword. Our swords can also be hand sharpened to your request or remain unsharpened – it’s your choice. Enjoy our selection and choose your samurai sword wisely.
