A great experience!

I spoke to a man called Tristan when discussing the engraving characters and design, he was helpful and enthusiastic thoughout, and at no point put any pressure on me to finalise the order. He reassured me on my translation of the kanji&katakana (for the engraving) and gave well explained & visual representation of what the finished design would be.

I had initially made a mistake with the order, which they contacted me about initially, they were very helpful in the later alterations I wished to make and even issued a new 10% discount code for me to use as the previous one had since expired.

I had confidence in the company throughout and am extremely happy with the finished product, they even carved out a space in the packaging to include a complimentary stand for the wakizashi.

Of course, I can't guarantee they could do that everytime, but it was a lovely touch to complete a beautiful and well anticipated present.

A great product, and outstanding customer service.
Thank you all very much

We will see

I purchased this sword and it arrived in a timely manner (I think 10 days) so coming from China that is fast , I received the package and the sword was packed very tight and secure , I have taken this sword apart and found no issues , it was made as specified and the metal is as advertised . I sliced thru a few bamboo mats and it appears to be a great cutter .

Hi James,

Thanks so much for your review! We're really pleased to hear that you're happy with your sword. Comments like this encourages us even more to give our customers the best quality products possible.

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.
