Great Sword - even better service!

This is a great company to do business with. The sword looks and feels very good value. I had a particularly stressful time, with my original order being stopped at the UK Border and held for further investigation. After going around in circles with Parcel Force UK and Customs trying to find out what was happening to it, BladesPro took on the matter and kept me informed regularly. They offered a full refund or to try a second attempt. I went for the latter as it was a gift and knew my husband would like it once it finally arrived. The second sword arrived in just over two weeks from dispatch, so proves I was just very unlucky with the first order, which a month later is still showing as 'Awaiting Customs Clearance'! Very securely packaged with a certificate to prove its authenticity inside. I cannot praise this company enough. Their customer service is first class, and the products are of excellent quality. If you are looking to purchase a samurai sword, look no further than BladesPro, you won't be disappointed!

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.
