Around a month ago I purchased one of your swords from Touch of Modern the App. I heard great reviews from your company and figured I'd buy one. That being said I bought the Hattori Kattana, and I was first Wondering after research what makes this a Hattori Kattana as the only ones I know of are based off of a sword smith in Okinawa. Second I wanted to know why it says on your site as well as Touch of Modern that you use Real Ryan Skin Cold wrapped (which it is not) and silk wrap around it (which as you can guess is not silk). Just wondering as the sword was not cheap and it is slightly misleading. That or ToMo screwed my order and sent me a cheaper version.
Thanks for your message. Regarding the Katana you purchased from Touch of Modern. The Ray skin is indeed real. You can purchase a cheap Katana for $100 and tell the difference by comparing the two. The cheap Katana will be made or a rubber/plastic. If you scratch the Ray skin you will hear a popping sound. Also, the Silk used is in fact Japanese Silk. Rest Assured that the Katana you ordered is of high quality. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
I have been a customer of Darksword Armory since 2010, and I must say the quality of workmanship has greatly increased over the years. The warmonger is beautiful, with lots of small details that come together to make a wonderful functional fantasy sword. The balance of the sword is great, handles well, the blade is very tight in the hilt with no rattling. The fur wrapped scabbard is a great addition to this barbaric blade, with the ricasso exposed showing the runes on the fuller when sheathed. Will be purchasing again soon, thanks again for this wonderful addition to my collection.
Aloha: I received my Scottish Claymore and scabbard today. Beautiful. I will proudly wear it at our upcoming Highland Games! Do you recommend a particular oil for the blade? or for the scabbard? It is generally humid in Hawaii & I want to protect the treasure I now have.
Thanks for your review. You can apply your light coat of mineral oil or a silicone spray to preserve the blade.
Really just getting into the sword collecting business, but I have to tell you that this particular one is awesome. I have several cheaper swords I have acquired over the years that I now consider junk when placed next to this one. The sword is tight and handles well. Perfect balance and craftsmanship. My thanks go out to the guys who built it. Anyway all in all very satisfied and will be back for more.
I recentley received my sword and its a true peice of art i recommend darksword armory i will be returning to buy more products
Hello to all. First i would like to say i by no means have a whole lot of experience with swords. Their different uses, types, and styles used are all interesting to me, and i am learning. But in the research i did in trying to find a usable one that did break the bank was with darksword. I chose the witch king, because of the versatility, and im a huge lotr fan. While reading about the different blades, my wife was looking over my shoulder, and as a result, ended up with rings and a sword. I made the order and expected it to be a month or so before i saw anything. A week later, I have everything. And they are works of art. The rings and the sword. You now have a customer for life. I look forward to my next purchase. From what I've seen and read, the people there are awesome as well, and i look forward to communicating with them as well.Kick ass products guys. Im not one to write these types of things, unless it's really bad, or really good. Im happy to say its the latter. The rings are gorgeous, so i have a happy wife. Thank you for that. And the sword is fantastic. It feels good, even though I have no idea what im talking about. Although I have found a western martial arts class around me so i hope to remedy that. The people at darksword will be seeing my name on the order list again soon enough. I not sure how to give a better review than im going to continue to give them my money!
I just received my amazing sword! I've had a few wall hangers before, but this is my first true quality sword. I am amazed by the high quality of the craftsmanship of my new blade! The company was very friendly and communication was swift and considerate. They let me make payments that fit my budget so that I could pay my sword off quickly. This sword is more than just a beautiful piece of art. It is a true weapon and I feel very fortunate to have it! Thanks dark sword!!! I will be coming back for another before long!
I bought the Norman Two Handed sword. It is well built with excellent balance. Also the scabbard is well made. It is a thing of beauty.
Having bought a sword from "Darksword Armory" some time ago,(& a novice collector at the time) I must offer a sincere apology for unfounded criticisms I had made about their product.I have since come to realize their products exceedingly surpass anything else on the market, in terms of workmanship, quality, & authenticity.
I received my 11th century Viking Suontaka sword two weeks ago. Wow. This is the first I have purchased in over fifteen years. In high school I had purchased more or less wall hanger swords by other companies. This my first REAL sword. I wanted a sword that was mostly historically accurate but more importantly a sword that is built like a tank that when if we ran out of bullets during the zombie apocalypse (humor), you could fall back on this. Strong and beautiful is the simplest way to describe this sword. My renewed interest in swords came about when the whole AncestryDNA thing came along and I discovered I had a pretty extensive Viking/Norman heritage. So, I will most likely be picking up one of the Darksword Norman options in the next couple of months. Thank you to everybody at Darksword Armory. I will be getting with y'all again in the very near future.
