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.
