I chose and bought a Katana in T10 Clay Tempered on this site, are excellent, good quality, finishes and materials. The first quality, excellent service, I had no problems with shipping to my country Chile, I recommend.
My wife, absolutely, loved this sword! Purple is her favorite color, and the way the handle is done is superb.
My favorite part is how the blade is acid washed red, and it makes the Damascus steel, stand out.
Thank you for an excellent product.
My custom 9260 spring steel nagamaki came in today, Andy couldn't be happier. All the fittings are snug and very attractive. The steel is tough, flexible and has a very nice polish on it. The customer service was excellent like other testimonials have said. When I requested a heavy niku sharpening they were quick to respond to inform me of what I requested, and double checked to make sure that's what I wanted. Shipping was very quick as well. If your in the market for a sword, please give these guys a shot and get their name out there. Good stuff fellas, keep it up.
I ordered custom katanas for my groomsmen and I cannot say enough about the overall experience with this company. Tony helped me in selecting individual pieces for all 4 swords and was patient throughout the whole process. He had all of them complete and on my door step (Arizona) within a few weeks of ordering. These are incredibly well made and was truly a unique gift to present during my wedding and went over very well. Thank you again Tony and I'm sure we'll be talking soon on my next order! I've also recommended you to some of my guests from this weekend and they are excited to order some swords as well.
I received my first purchase from Katanas For Sale last week. I bought a Katana and am very happy with it. It was a 5 Star experience in all aspects. It only took about a week and a half to prepare my blade and about another week to arrive here via the shipping method they used. When I received it I found it to be well packed and without any damage. Upon opening the package I was very pleased with my new sword. I highly recommend this company to anyone intending to buy a katana. Sincerely, Jimmy Merle 3/2/17
I just wanted to say the katana is gorgeous and perfectly done. I WILL be purchasing from you again in the future!
Thank you so much,
5 ***** stars
Great customer service with prompt shipping and great variety of customization options. Everything arrived great to the last detail, the white ray skin looked amazing complimenting my other sword. overall 5 star outstanding craftsmanship will definitely buy again.
Just a note to let everyone know that the quality and service from katanasforsale cannot be duplicated. I recently ordered a Tanto and Box. the service and attention to detail could not be duplicated. Tony walked me through the process of putting together a custom Tanto which I love. his opinion and help made the process effortless. in the end I received a great masterpiece. a blade that I can display and be proud of. Katanasforsale is a company that I would highly recommend and would look foward to doing more business with again. a great experience.
