Do you dream about creating your own sword? One that is exactly how you envision it, that has the exact look, feel, and design you want... A sword that truly represents you, a tribute to the warrior within.
Creating your own, unique sword is without any doubt one of the most satisfying experiences for any sword aficionado. A customized sword is a tribute to the warrior within... It's a recollection of a time when the Samurai and the Ninja in the East, or the Viking and the Knight in the West, were fighting with a one-of-a-kind weapon... A sword made in their image, honoring their brave Spirit.
At Custom Swords, we pride ourselves in creating 100% custom swords. Our specialty is handcrafted Japanese swords - from the katana, to the wakizashi, to the tanto. However, we can also craft European and Chinese-style swords.
You have total control over the type of sword you design. You can choose from hundreds of options, creating a sword you'll be proud to call your own... And it all starts with the blade. When choosing a blade, we have 7 types of metals to choose from. They are, in order of quality and price, as follows:
- 1060 Steel
- 1095 Steel
- 9260 Spring Steel
- Kobuse (Clay Tempered & Folded 1095 Steel)
If you choose 1060 or 1095 steel, we'll also be able to make the blade folded to create a beautiful hamon of your choice. Moreover, you'll also be able to have the steel clay-tempered - creating a beautiful pattern on the sword. Finally, we can also microplate the blade with one of our 4 choices of color, which reinforces the steel and makes it a bit more durable.
Afterward, you'll also be able to customize the following:
- The sword's Blood Groove, traditionally called Bo-hi, or simply Hi
- The sword's Blade Collar, traditionally called the Habaki & Seppa
- The Handle Wrap, also called Ito
- The handle's Rayskin Underwrap, also called its Same’Gawa
- The Handle Guard & Fittings stopping your hands from touching the blade. They're traditionally called the Tsuba, Fuchi, Koshira, and Menuki
- The Scabbard, also called Saya in traditional Japanese terms
- The Scabbard Cord, traditionally called the Sageo
- The sword's Bag, traditionally called a bag. This one's way simpler.
Finally, you'll also be able to add a Custom, Hand-made Engraving
on your blade. A final touch to leave no doubts as of who designed your custom sword.
