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.

Selection and Quality

Swords of Northshire is known for our made-to-order pieces and huge selection. When you purchase one of our hand forged katana swords, you are able to freely select the design of the ito (handle wrap), same’gawa (under wrap), saya (sheath), and sageo (sheath cord). You can even customize your sword color and design through our build your own katana option.

We use top quality materials, including premium 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel to craft completely authentic samurai katana swords. All of our katana are fully functional and can be hand sharpened to a razor edge if desired. Before you add a sword to your cart, simply select if you wish it to be unsharpened or hand sharpened. Since each piece we create is made of hardened steel, even the unsharpened blades can be dangerous and must be treated with care.
