Kill Bill Budd Engraving

The Kill Bill Budd that I ordered for my Brother is magnificent and the engraving is perfect! The Bill inscription to Budd from the movie is excellently done and the engraving for my Brother on the other side is perfect. This company was a delight to order from and the swords are excellent.

Hey Robert!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write your feedback. We feel really good knowing that you're happy with the swords that you ordered. Hope your brother liked it too. Cheers!

Eiji Carbon Steel Katana Samurai Sword

It was a wonderful gift for my significant other. She loved it! Super high quality, sharp, engraving was spot on, and is it beautiful when the sun hits the blue blade. Delivery was fast and well packaged.

Hi John,

So glad to hear that your partner loved the sword. The blue plating certainly adds a charm and makes it look strikingly beautiful. Thanks for the feedback!

No complaints

The engraving is done with a laser, which is precise and clean. However, I did notice that when wiping the blade down that the engraving would catch on the cloth, which is hardly worth mentioning.

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for your feedback, we will pass this on to our product team, so they can make sure all engravings are smooth so this doesn't happen. We are happy to hear that you liked your sword and e hope you enjoy it!

Love my katana!

Had a couple issues along the ordering process, was even sent the wrong sword. But BladesPro rectified it right away and I was able to keep the wrong sword and the one i originally ordered with an engraving got to my house 5 days after i notified them about the wrong sword. Very fast and efficient company, will most definitely order from them again!!!

Hi Joshua,
We are so happy to hear that you liked your sword after it finally arrived! We are so sorry about the mistake, but we are happy to have helped and get the sword you were after. We hope you enjoy it and if anything comes up, our team is always here to help!

How is your sword made?

Sword Crafting In 3 Simple Steps

All our swords are hand-crafted using traditional forging methods that have been in place for thousands of years.

Click the tabs above to see exactly how we'll make your sword - from Design, to Forging, to Finishing.

1. Design

Designed by experts.

First, your sword is designed by experts who've crafted thousands of swords. Our product team carefully plans the combination of aesthetics and features that will make up the sword:

Aesthetics: Shape, design, colours, ornaments and decorations, and fittings to determine the look and style of the final piece.

Features: Practicalities such as blade length, blade width, steel type, handle and scabbard dimensions, as well as weight and whether or not the sword will include a Bo-Hi.

2. Forging

Forged by Craftsmen... by hand.

For the inner core of the blade, impurities are removed and steel created via the smelting process. The carbon level is varied (higher or lower) to get a result of softer or harder steel. The brick-sized piece of prepared steel is then forged until soft, and hammered until elongated. It's then folded over and over until all impurities are removed and the desired shape is achieved.

For the outer part of the blade, the heat/pound/fold technique is applied up to 3,000 times to create a strong blade, which is then painted with a clay and charcoal mixture and thrust into water to finalise.

3. Finishing

Finishing touches.

The blade is then polished and a handle attached. From there, the sword is adorned with desired fittings and ornaments, engraved (if desired) and lacquer is applied to the wooden scabbard to create a beautiful, functional piece. It's then carefully packed and shipped out using our courier service, arriving at your door safe and sound.
