How to create your own sword

Choose from our selection of Oakeshoot style guards. Style VI can be chosen plain or engraved for an additional $5. If you choose the engrave-able guard please call Customer Service at 800-883-8838 to have the initials added to your order.

Do you want more options?

After receiving many requests from sword enthusiasts, we decided to offer more options for creating your masterpiece. But what all options should we include? Is it more blade designs, or a variety of shape, sizes and color for the hilt, guard, pommel or the handle? Or perhaps, a different type of sword altogether? Like a Rapier or Hand and a Half or a companion Dagger. Send us your suggestions and we will try including them in our offerings!

Very nice for the price
After playing with the BYOS page for a while I decided to purchase one.  Delivery was in under a week.  Was packed well.  I was really suprised at the quality.  Yes, the sword is a tank.  It is heavy but not terribly so.  Very solid.  No wiggle or loose parts.  I ordered a brown grip and it is very dark.  Almost black.  Stitching is tight and feels sturdy.  In all a sturdy sword that is in my opinion a good value and kind of fun to put your own input on it.  I will probably order a few more.

Not as expected, but still great.
I liked going through the options.  MusRep delivered a cool sword.  But, I thought the engraved initials would be on the "engraveable guard"; they were on the blade instead.

A little let down
The sword is sturdy but very blade heavy. A few things made it a let down when it didn't need to be. First the peen was messy. I cleaned it up the best I could. Second the pommel had a very dark patina which took some work to clean up. But most dissapointing was the fact that the type A pommel is noticeable off center and there is nothing I can do about that. I like the idea of build your own sword but the execution was lacking at least on mine.

Good sword
The sword and scabbard look great. It feels a bit heavy for its size and was slightly shorter than I was expecting, but It's a decent and well-built sword.

Good product.
The sword came less than a week after being ordered.  For the price, overall construction was nice.  I ordered the sharpening service and initials, and itncane with my initials as ordered.  It was sharpened, but I might try and get it a littler sharper.  Over all, I’m very pleased with this purchase.

Absolutely love it!  Very well made and balanced sword!  The sword belt and scabbard are also top notch!  Would  definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to build their own but have doubts--HAVE NO DOUBT about it--THIS IS A GREAT DEAL!!!

Very disappointed
The sword looks nice, but I paid for sharpening and engraving and received neither.

Waiting to hear from customer service about a refund.
