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.

Wakizashi

Wakizashi

To complete your samurai sword set, you need a wakizashi to complement your katana. The wakizashi sword possesses a shorter blade than a katana and was used in close quarters fighting. The wakizashi and shorter pairing to the katana worn together on the obi (belt) was the official sign of a samurai, and the pair of swords together were called daisho. Even when the katana was left at the door of a palace, the wakizashi sword was always worn at the samurai’s side. Explore our handcrafted swords here to create your own samurai set.

Top Quality Products

At Swords of Northshire, our wakizashi for sale are hand forged in the traditional Japanese style by a master swordsmith. They are full of intricate designs and unique details that ensure each sword is completely original. We choose to work only with the best materials, such as premium 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel. These metals are optimally heat treated to create a strong, durable, and fully functional sword.

Once you decide on the right sword for you, choose if you prefer a hand sharpened or unsharpened blade to add to your collection. Sharpened blades are capable of cutting through tatami mats, bamboo, and bone. Unsharpened pieces for display purposes and iaido training are still dangerous, as these are weighty hardened steel blades.

Shop with the Experts

The Swords of Northshire team has a passion for swords and a dedication to bringing you exactly what you’re looking for. Whether you prefer to use the wakizashi blade in iaido or kenjutsu practice or you just want to display it prominently with your collection, we can help.
