Despite delays in delivery due to international circumstances, my custom-built Nosyudo iaito is fantastic! It's an amazing piece, fitting and other options look even better in real life, the sword feels great in hand and is well-balanced. I must also thank Martyn for his endless support over the months who always swiftly answered all my questions before the order and during the processing! :)

Great iaito and great service from Nine Circles. I ordered mine with a non-standard customisation. It arrived reasonably quickly but with a small error. NC were great, immediately arranging shipping labels for its return to them. It went back to Japan for correction and then made it back to NC and on to me still within the published lead time for these custom jobs (10-14 weeks). Mistakes can happen and this was another great example of customer service from Nine Circles.

I have now owned this custom built iaito for aprox 3 months now, and it's lovely. The balance and the cutting sound is very good. The ito was very good wrapped (it was wrapped tight and good), the blade also fitted well into the tsuka and the saya was also fitted quite well with the blade. The notare #2 hamon was beautiful and looked very real. I've had no problem whatsoever with the sword. It did take a long time to get the sword, but trust me... It's totally worth the wait.

Well three weeks into owning my new tokujo iaito, and I have to say I am loving it. The very long wait 15.5 weeks was a long time for someone with the patients of a gnat, but it seems to have been worth it. The custom build is great as the sword is tailored to what you want and the finish is top notch, with a really nice hamon. The saya is a deep rich colour with a high lacquered finish. The balance is good and the audible feedback has a nice sound to it. The Tsuka is only single pegged which I thought unusual, but seems fine but it is early days. Would I recommend this custom build? Yes absolutely as it compares well with a Tozando blade of the same price bracket, which was bought four months ago by a friend. I may post an update in a couple of months time. But for now I'm well pleased.
