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.

With high-quality steel and intricate detail, our odachi samurai swords are made in the traditional Japanese style. The odachi sword, also known as a nodachi, is a great, long sword that was either used by foot soldiers or as a ceremonial piece. It was carried on the back or by hand, the latter being more practical to easily draw it in battle. This differs from other samurai swords, such as the wakizashi that was worn on the left side, secured to the waist sash. Whether you want to take an odachi into battle or display it proudly in your home, our swords are handcrafted with the best materials for a fully functional sword that can be sharpened to your desired edge. It is an excellent choice for dojo and iaido uses and durable enough for tameshigiri, bamboo, and iron wire.

Nodachi vs. Odachi? 

Both Nodachi and Odachi swords were created in the feudal times for war purposes. Although many would think that since they were made during the same period of time and for the same purposes, that they would share a lot of similarities. Instead, they are rather different. The main differentiating features between Nodachi and Odachi swords are their weight, length, and curve of the blade.
