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.

The quality in craftsmanship of the sword I had custom made is impeccable. The materials are beautiful. The staff were always available when needed and very informative.

Katana

Authentic Katanas

The katana is the soul of the samurai. Its distinct appearance — a single, curved blade and long grip for two hands — is recognized worldwide. At Swords of Northshire, our authentic katana swords are handcrafted in the historical Shinto style of samurai swords with intricate details and unique designs. Wear your katana with a shorter wakizashi piece on an obi (traditional Japanese belt) to create the traditional samurai pairing called a daisho or hang it on your wall for a unique display. Explore our selection of katana samurai swords today to find the perfect one for you.

 

Selection & Quality

 

Swords of Northshire creates made-to-order pieces and offers a vast selection of weapons. When you purchase one of our hand-forged, authentic katana swords, you have the chance to choose 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 when you build your own katana.

 

Top-quality materials, including premium 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel, ensure fully functional, sharp, and durable katana samurai swords. Before you add a sword to your cart, select your sharpening and engraving preferences. Since we create each piece from hardened steel, even the unsharpened blades can be dangerous and must be treated with care.
