Update and a Passing
An update on my Memorial Day Sale. The sale is progressing quite nicely with quite a few pieces already sold so I suggest if there is anything you wish to acquire during this sale please do so ASAP cause it my not be here when you return.
Sad Passing: Muhammed Ali, dies at 74.
I have mixed feelings about the man.I for one did not care for his politics or some of his beliefs..I admit that openly and freely. With that being said..I must say that I respected that man immensely. Some call him a draft dodger..If I hear someone say that about him I am likely to go off and punch them in the nose. He was NOT. He was a draft PROTESTER..He opposed the draft that would of sent him off to fight in a conflict he did not believe in. He never once bowed his head and ran off to Canada or someplace else..nor did he join a college just to get a deferment. NO..instead he stood fast and then he made the following statement..with the convictions of a true believer:
"Why should me and other so called Negroes go 10,000 miles away from home, here in America, to drop bombs and bullets on other innocent brown people who's never bothered us?... and I will say directly: No I will NOT go"..
He stood up for what he believed in..he didn't whine, he didn't run, he did NOT hide. He took his licks for what he did and that was simply civil disobedience.. He refused, peacefully to go and then he did his time and endured everything that was thrown at him. And for that..Mr Ali has my respect for you see...I spent 32 years of my life defending this man's right (and those like him) to protest, to be part of a type of protest that was started many years ago by another great man ..Mohandis Gandhi and that is Civil Disobedience..which is simply not doing something that you were told to ..not rioting, not fighting..not complaining, just simply not doling it.. And for that he was jailed..However Mr Ali endured and came back with even more drive and conviction..He did his time.. He did not dodge anything..he did not complain..he stood his ground for his beliefs and for that...he has my undying respect and he or anyone like him can drink from my canteen any time.
Rest in peace Mr Ali...rest in peace..

Memorial Day Annual Sale is ON!~!
Before I get into the "business" part of this update I would like to take a moment to pay respect to those who have fallen in battle or succumbed to grievous wounds that they suffered defending this nation.
This day, Memorial Day was set aside to remember the fallen, for freedom is not free..it is paid for dearly with blood, body and limb of those who picked up the gauntlet and stood shoulder to shoulder and gave their all in the defense of these United States...Let us take a moment to remember those brave men and women who no longer cast a shadow upon this mortal plane.. Thank you for your sacrifice...May you find peace..and thank you once again..
Onto other things...
Well it is official..my annual Memorial Day and end of Faire sale is now ON and running. This sale will run until midnight on Monday, June 6, 2016 (Las Vegas time). So here is a chance to take advantage of the sale and get a piece or two. Everything has been reduced and is available and ready to go!
I am putting up the last few pieces of my limited Japanese series (these are reduced as well) and these swords are VERY NICE.. I have like 4 numbers left to fill and that is it!! NO MORE JAPANESE BLADES FOR A LOOONG TIME.
I will also be posting new items as they are finished during the sale at the sale prices so check back often. Please feel free to look around my In Stock pages and see if anything piques your interest. As always if you have any questions or wish additional photos, by all means feel free to ask.
Thank you for your interest in Salamander Armoury

Update on My Annual Sale!
As far as my Annual end of RPFS and Memorial Day Sale goes..I am doing a lot of work behind the scenes as they say...getting the photos ready and SLTT.
The sale will run from noon (Las Vegas/PST) May 30 2016 until midnight June 6, 2015. There's a bunch of pattern welded pieces in this sale as well as the last of my Japanese style pieces. I WILL be adding items during this sale so drop by and see what is new.. If anything interests you or if you would like additional photos.all you have to do is ask and I will do my best to provide them!!
So drop on by and see what we have..
More will be posted once the sale is under way..
Well RPFS is finished..and as usual...in the next week top 10 days, depending, I will be holding my annual end of RPFS Sale of items remaining from that event as well as what is currently listed. So check back middle of this week for more info..
What is new..I will be posting several more pattern welded pieces as well as a Gen II Dia-sho (probably the last one I will ever make) a Gen III Katana and a Gen III O-Katana with a drop dead Hamon. For all intents and purposes the limited series is more or less complete as I only have several numbers left and I will finish these when I finish them. Can't say when cause I am pretty much burned out on the Japanese stuff..
What is coming up...I am doing a ruin or pattern welded sgain dubh and boot knives as well as a couple of my weird fantasy pieces in PW materials set with star ruby or sapphire on the sheaths..these should start to appear the first of June..So again, please drop by and see what is new...
