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.

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.

Samurai Swords

The samurai sword dates back to the Japanese Edo Period and as far back as the Kamakura Period. The distinctive curved blade and long grip was designed as a two-handed sword and became the symbol of the samurai class. It was traditionally made with tamahagane steel that swordsmiths would fold and temper into a curved sword. During the forging process, a hamon unique to the swordsmith was formed and revealed when the blade was polished. The samurai katana sword is still used in a variety of martial arts today including iaido, kenjutsu, iaijutsu, ninjutsu, and kendo. In Japanese the katana is called dai or daitō which means “big sword.”
