This Martial Arts Katana offers great quality at a reasonable price, it's made to look just like the Blades Sword from The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Featuring our hand forged and polished 1060 carbon steel blade, designed for optimal balance and handling. This sword is a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. Our steel blades have been designed from the ground up, to offer perfect balance for regular Iaido & Kenjutsu use. The blade is unsharpened by default, and the customer can opt for free sharpening service. The sword comes equipped with a black lacquered hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, solid alloy fittings, genuine same' (rayskin) and silk wrapped tsuka (handle). The Katana is well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.

Excellent quality. As my first sword I wanted to go with something cheaper and possibly lower quality but this sword has set the bar very high for any future swords I buy. The customer service was amazing with quick replies to any questions and pictures of the sword before shipping to make sure it was what I wanted. Shipping: After waiting a mere 2 or so weeks from purchase I had this sword in my hand (I live in Brisbane, Australia so I don't know how that freight time will compare to other locations) Appearance: After excitedly getting through the styrofoam packing I carefully slide the sword out of the sword bag, I opted for Red rayskin with Black leather grip which looks amazing, coupled with Scabbard #111 (black and red) made it really impressive to see. After cleaning the blade of the "freight oil" I spent and embarrassing amount of time admiring the blade, It's edge was sharp and true the entire length and the Bo-hi (fuller/blood groove) really added some nice geometry. My issues (which are very minor): The dragon/ cobra tsuba had a sharp burr or ridge in the cobra head that would be uncomfortable but not enough to actually cut, some light filing fixed that though. The red rayskin looked a bit plasticy. And while the leather wrap looked great and was even the whole way it doesn't feel or handle the best, at least with bare hands. If anyone is after a working/beater sword I suggest going with the cloth wrap. The edge, although sharp, was not "razor" sharp but I wouldn't consider this an issue more just to dispel the "razor sharp from the box" expectation, if its a razor edge you want then get yourself some oil and a honing stone (and of coarse be very, very careful!) But overall this sword is excellent quality vs price. and would recommend to anyone as a reliable "go to" sword to buy.

a:2:{s:7:"content";s:2005:"I wanted to order a well made, katana for my son\'s 18th birthday / graduation for a reasonable price. I have previously ordered a custom katana, tanto, and iaito through SON, and all of those blades I have purchased thus far were absolutely stunning and excellent quality. So I decided to order my son\'s katana through SON. SON did not disappoint. I ordered the 1060 High Carbon Steel Blade Dragon & Snake Martial Arts Iaito Katana, and the beautiful thing is for a "production" non-custom sword, you still have the ability to do a great deal of customization! My son\'s favorite colors are blue, red and black... I was able to order the katana with a blue silk tsuka ito, blue sageo, black same, and red carved saya (ordered separately in "sword accessories" for only $25 extra). It also comes in a Dragon theme which is perfect because he was born in 2000, the Year of the Golden Dragon (on Chinese Calendar). I chose to have the blade sharpened so that he could eventually practice some light tameshigiri. Finally I had his name engraved (for free) in Japanese Kanji on the blade. \r\n Bryce was awesome through the whole process and answered all my questions quickly. I received the sword a little over two weeks after ordering (shipped directly from the forge in China not bad!!) The sword was PERFECT. The ito wrap was tight and precise, no gaps or looseness. The fittings (tsuba, fuchi-kashira, menuki) were all well made, artful sturdy. The blade had a very nice polish, and was free of any defects or flaws, the bohi was well grooved and even, and the cutting edge was very sharp out of the box. As others have mentioned in the reviews, you CANNOT beat the quality, craftsmanship, and customization for the price point. I am still blown away by the quality of the swords I have purchased thru SON (4 now total). Great price, great quality, and AWESOME customer service by Bryce and company!!! Please see attached pics of my son\'s katana.... BTW HE LOVED IT.

a:2:{s:7:"content";s:794:"Attention, the Swords of Northshire are incredible!! This is my first but probably not my last purchase from SON.\r\n\r\nI purchased this sword about a month ago and it arrived last week in a super reinforced well protected package. My sword is beautiful, tight construction, sharp as hell (I got the blade for heavy cutting not razor sharp and it works as described), and just fantastic. I don\'t usually post reviews for much of anything, but I felt the need to let you know that I am very happy with my purchase, especially when you compare this inexpensive katana against those costing MUCH more. If you are not interested in spending a ton of money for a really great weapon, you can\'t go wrong with this one. I have 3 swords from 3 vendors and this is easily my favorite. Period.
