  1. A Witch King says:

    I voted for United Cutlery coz i love fantasy swords and Kit rae designs.

  2. Peter Wong says:

    Marto and Hanwei are the best brands in this industry.

  3. Godfred says:

    I can personally recommend Paul Chen swords (Hanwei).

  4. Mike says:

    My experience:

    Kit Rae has the best design, Thaitsuki Nihonto crafts the best combat katanas in the world. I was a huge sci fi fan so i bought Highlander katana from Marto years ago. I am still happy with the sword.

    PS: I cannot recommend cheap MC swords.

    If we are not speaking about a factory style production, my bet would be on Daniel Watson.

    I know that they are quite expensive compared with the others, but you would have a great sword made with one of the strongest steel available out there… I’ve discovered them after I saw the episode of Mythbusters where a katana was supposed to cut through a barrel Browning 30 cal. machinegun… the Angelswords blade was the only one to do that… not only that but it gave a double cut.

  6. Sword collector says:

    Definitely Hanwei and Marto from the list above.

  7. Di Pietro says:

    I have 4 hanwei swords in my collection. I am happy with every blade.

  8. FRODO says:

    United cutlery is my pick.

  9. katana says:

    I think the hanwei Paul Chen swords are definitely the best.

  10. Outlander says:

    United cutlery is the best coz i am fantasy fan.

  11. Gandalf says:

    United Cutlery has a great fantasy design. Their swords are true collectible pieces and excellent movie replicas. The only problem is yoou cannot seriously use these swords for a real fight.

  12. Thomas P. says:

    Hanwei crafts affordable and very sharp and quality swords, Marto produces probably nicest swords.

  13. MARA says:

    Musashi is a very affordable sword maker but their swords are quality. Paul chen is the most famous sword maker.

  14. Thedragonsedge says:

    I vote for United Cutlery. Because of Gil Hibben and Kit Rea were designers for them

  15. Tomoe says:

    Paul Chen-Hanwei.

  16. Manhaim says:

    Hanwei and Musashi produce the best Japanese swords, Marto and Valiant armoury create the best middle-age swords and stuff.

  17. Sword says:

    In all yes Marto and Hanwei are the best there is but I voted for cold steel because they possesses the one thing not all sword makers have, and that’s durability, I’ve kept a sword that roughly 8 years old from cold steel and it still looks brand new.

  18. clint says:

    Howard Clark!

  19. asfilon says:

    Marto is the best

  20. Anonymous says:

    Peter Johnsson hands down, European and Viking style if you can afford him.
    Howard Clark Japanese and Asian styles swords.
    You’re not going to find the best sword for under $2000, just not going to happen.
