Feel free to let yourself go and let me know how you really feel about this tool in the comments below
hi. once again you’ve done it. a great piece of craftmanship. the 2 swords i bought from you are still as they were when i purchased them. best wishes. happy christmas to you all, and yours
Love it – even thou there were some bugs and I could not choose a tsuba. I figure it’s a concept. Will it be available for custom iaitos? It would also be nice to know the exact materials – which fittings are brass and which are silver. Lenghts of tsuka and blade. Leather or silk, etc.. Not so much in the 3D image but when selecting and buying. Maybe listed below the image with a price calculator – so that as I design my custom sword I see what I am getting into price-wise.
But really nice idea. Keep me posted.
First it was difficult to imagine your custom made sword. Know, i have an image of my sword
Now I will definitely buy a custom made sword !!!!
Thanks and please keep me posted
Very nice tool, the final image is nice. But maybe it could be acomplished by some real fotos. However i like it very much!
Very nicely done. An excellent idea! It’s nice to actually see what you’re envisioning.
I like this new feature it still needs a bit of work because sometimes it won’t change to what I’ve selected and it a bit slow but once the bugs are worked this will be a great tool to help create a custom sword
Great start, just add some more options and get the interface to run a little smoother!
I cant do anything with it, And I tried with google chrome and with explorer.
Great tool to visualise your custom sword. But needs to be more detailed. It should have option to select steel and other things like nr of menuki type of fuchi, kashira…
I look forward to seeing what this will become, in time.
Great tool! Cant wait until the app is complete.
Really cool , but a little more choices and a little better graphics would be cool , and the colors, such as blue dont show up that well ,
Butt all in all it is pretty cool !
I think its great !!!
Beside a few bugs and not the option for tsuba,tsuka maybe saya desingn options ito colors? beside that
I find it very useful and als it gives a real good idea of what the sword would look like,
So keep on going en keep me posted
Like most others have said it will be pretty class when all the bugs are worked out and you have more options like different styles of wraps or blade etc. Maybe try have a similar setup whereby you could rotate and pan the 3D model. Maybe an adjustable background to help with certain colours (just some ideas). Anyway best of luck with it and thanks for making the effort to do something like this.
This is awesome! Well once it works all the time. Had some problems when changing item, at first it worked, then it only seemed to work in the reflections on the countertop. But they idea of this is a very good one. I also liked sword no. 4, was a beautiful piece.
Beside the couple bugs, it looks really cool. I believe that the 3D sword builder will attract many buyers, including myself . Its a great idea!!
Very nice! I want to see your new ideas about pan the sword and others tsuba, kashira or tsuka.
and…I wait your mail soon!

I second that
Absolutely Brilliant! I am more than likely gonna buy a custom sword now.
Schitterend , ik volg jullie side regelmatig en heb nu de knoop doorgehakt om een mooi bij zwaard bij U aan te schaffen het aankomend jaar. Eerst sparen en een bonsai – boom minder kopen. Tot dan.

yes, with the price calculator it would be just perfect!
Very nice, far as it goes. Saya colors, and more tsuba types would add versatility. Intriguing presentation already. Please do continue to add features!
That is really cool !
Now I want a custom sword.
really very nice idea design custom sword
I really think it’s a great idea, and is nicely done, however, I would save user choices in the drop downs.
“Like”…I so need to get around to chosing the sword I want
ok its awesome… we definetly need something that estimates the cost within a 500 euro range. since this thing is just popping up. ill wait til you have completed the list of selectable colors/option in the drop downs. but its already an amazing idea
My fascination for japanese swords was born around 2005 when i was running my first online martial arts equipment store and a customer asked me if i didn’t got any ‘real’ Japanese Swords...
Yes i’m a real person and not an anonymous guy that is trying to hide behind some online curtains :)
