Choosing A Sword

choosing_swordSwords can be made to suit many purposes. They can complement a particular fighting style, for instance, or reflect a favored historical period. Or they can be treasured as works of art, powerful symbols to be proudly displayed. At Angel Sword we recognize that your reasons for buying a sword are unique, and so we offer five lines of custom blades to meet a variety of needs, desires and budgets – all backed by the best guarantee in the business. For added toughness, all of our blades undergo our patent-pending Therma-Cycle™ processing to make them the toughest, high-hardness blades on the market.

Angel Sword | Hand-forged, heirloom quality swords and daggers. These blades are made using the classic sword making ingredients – hammer, anvil, fire and sweat.

Avatar Damascus | The legendary qualities of wootz Damascus steel return in these fine weapons. Our Techno-Wootz™ Damascus steel opens new horizons in the sword maker’s art.

Bright Knight | An excellent introduction to fine blades, and less expensive than our other custom blades. The Bright Knight series features S7 steel and undergoes our patent-pending Therma-Cycle™ processing to make them exceptionally tough.

Bumon | Japanese-style katana and tanto featuring pinned construction and differential hardening to create a hamon on the blade. Bumon’s also have traditional tsuba and fuchi cast from antiques, and silk wrapped handles with menuki.

Buccaneer Katana | Angel Sword is proud to introduce our new Buccaneer katana line of traditional Japanese-style swords. Buccaneer katana feature the traditional construction that fans of Japanese swords demand, but is less expensive than our premium Bumon line.

Buccaneer | Our most basic blades. Not 100 percent made at the Angel Sword shop, but still treated with our patent-pending Therma-Cycle™ processing and covered by our guarantee.

What is a Sword? In another age, the answer would have been simple. But today, this question is not as straightforward as it first appears. Just what makes a length of metal a real sword instead of a club? What are the characteristics that define a sword?
