    Another Sword Manufacturer for your list.

    In perusing your list I did not notice handmadeswords.com. Their prices range from less than $100.00 to $18,000.00.

  6. Hand made

    this "hand made" it is a marketing speach, not a reflecsion of a quality blade.

    sorry, i can`t stop myself

    Hi All.

    I just wanted to tell you all that my swords are all handmade. I smelt the steel. I hammer the steel. I grind the blade. I hand heat treat the blade. I hand polish the steel. I make my own handles and put them on the swords. I make the wood sheaths. I do sometimes buy the guards that are engraved since this is a skill like an aritst and i am not an artist. I am a sword maker.

    I invite you to look at the swords on my web site and ask any question you have.

    I have more new pictures coming and each day I make swords.

    Thank you for your time.

    Dear Friends:

    All the talk about handmade and factory made swords has made me think.

    I want to show and let every one know that I really handmade all my swords. It is not a factory. I have a work room and I have my son and my wife to help me and some friends. I also have a student or 2 to help. Some I pay for their work and work for free just to learn.

    I will begin making a sword tomorrow and I will start in the morning to smelt the steel powder to begin. I want to document this process and all can see the time and effort it takes to make a sword step by step.

    I have a friend that has a nice camera and he will take pictures as I go through all steps making the Japanese sword.

    My English is not that good and I will try to explain all that I can on each step. If any one has any questions I will be happy to try and explain what I am doing. Each step will be documented for your reference. And you can ask any questions as we go. Most times it takes 15 to 30 days to make single sword.

    I will begin tomorrow making a Japanese sword and I will smelt the powdered steel for the start.

    If anyone thinks this should be in a single thread please let me know and I will try to open a new thread to show all the processes.

    Thank you and I am happy to be part of this good forum.

    Rich Chen.

    They do a lot of custom swords from the Zheng Wu forge in China, though i've not handled one myself i've spoken with a few people who have bought swords from them and they all sound very happy with what they got, both Chinese and Japanese swords.
    I'm going to be ordering off them sometime this year i hope, you'll find Leigh is very flexable, he has a good relationship with the forge and he'll do his best to accomodate whatever requirments you have.

    If you check out the Satori Katana that is a good example of how well they work with their customers.

    I have never seen such a website before, you can customize your own sword, it's amazing, totally terrific. I bought mine and it arrived, I'm currently writting a review of it. buyiaito is a division of zhisword, I know many of you know, but this website I can't find people talking about it on internet. If you like to customize things, this place you can.

    Don't forget in Seki, Japan, Nosyudo not only makes and sells iaito, but can commission nihonto by different levels of toshyo. People interested in contacting Nosyudo or purchasing their goods, can PM me and I'll point you in the right direction.
