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.

Tachi

Tachi

The tachi sword is a traditionally crafted Japanese sword dating back to the Kotō period (900-1596), and is a design that preceded the katana. It differs from the katana in several ways, including how it was worn. This style of samurai sword was hung on the belt with the cutting edge down instead of facing up. The mei, or signature, appears on the opposite side of the tang on a tachi blade, so it is still visible when facing outward from the belt.

 

Authentic tachi must be hung from a leather device or two hangers to ensure it lays horizontally against the body of the wielder. It also averages between 27 and 32 inches in length with a greater taper from hilt to point. The longest known Japanese tachi sword measured 12 feet from end to end with a blade that was a little more than seven feet in length.
