Just an update. I have two of my Japanese swords left in stock..a O-Katana and the No-Dachi. I have drastically reduced the price on the O-Katana due to medical reasons, nothing life threatening just something that will keep me out of work for about 2 weeks.. Its has been reduced by a whopping 50%.. Here is a chance to get a beautiful sword for a down right steal of a price.
On other fronts. RPFS in Irwindale..our blades will be there with my E-vile Minions. I am in the middle of a major production run and will be having a nice selection of items available...So feel free to drop by Oso Forge and talk to my Minions..
So first come first serve on the O-Katana...
Take care and thank you for dropping by..
Update and BAD NEWS
First, the update...I just put up two more pieces, the first is the canceled order for that custom Gen II Katana..a beautiful sword....and a Gen III Katana blade..these are already up and ready to go...
Now for the BAD NEWS: Last night (Saturday) we got hit by a burglar. They got some of my tooling, one of my forges, most of my pommel/guard stock as well as all of my wire rope (that i use to make cable blades from) as well as a stack of 1060 steel that I use for sword blades and quite a few other tid bits...they even took my two buckets of HC rail road spikes...the rat bastards.. This is a MAJOR HIT for us and frankly, to be honest.the timing couldn't be any worse....if things don't sell enough off this web site to get these materials replaced (our business insurance doesn't cover raw materials...oh joy) this could be the end of Salamander Armoury.
I have reduced prices drastically on pretty much everything on this site so if you are going to buy...NOW would be a good time... If you want to order...that would be great as well...as it sits..I am taking a hit for close to $3500.00 worth of materials and supplies..(heck if you want that dai-sho No 73&74 of 125..the first $3000.00 takes it...THAT is a screaming deal for blades like this..that's almost a $2000.00 savings.) I will pay for the shipping on anything on this site.
Couple this burglary with the fact that I will be out of the loop for 10 days or so due to medical reasons...this is a catastrophe happening here in Henderson. I know this sounds harsh but it is the way it is.... simple as that....
I am so angry that I could spit nails.... Sorry for sounding so angry and disgusted but that is how I am right now.. VERY angry and TOTALLY disgusted...
As far as folks with stuff on order..You have NOTHING to worry about..all orders are safe and sound...they didn't get any of them..lucky for me... so that is the one good thing that came outta this...
Thanks for listening...and please take a look at what I have and if anything interests you..please feel free to inquire further....

Update and New Items Added.
I have added several new items to my in stock pages under my "Weird and Wonderful" heading.. a Laminated sword blade, this is a Gen I Japanese style sword blade with great grain and NASTY sharp as well as two laminated tanto blades. I am just tired of the Japanese stuff. In fact I still have that one Gen II Katana that was an order cancellation that I need to finally rub out and post, which I will probably be doing shortly, and a double edged "ken" style tanto blade that I need to photograph and post... and that is IT..as far as what is on this site presently as far as the Japanese blades go..It's OVER...Done with them for a looong while. Which brings me to this...
Item Nos 73/125 and 74/125, both Gen III Blades are a matched Dai-Sho. I am feeling a bit of a financial crunch right now due to some medical things happening. I am willing to offer these two blades as a Dai-Sho for $3200.00 for the pair. This is a screamer of a deal as it is a savings of well over $1700.00. I'll even go for the shipping anywhere in the world (as long as they are legal for you to own).
Due to the afore mentioned medical situation I may be a bit tardy in getting back to you but I will answer all e-mails as soon as I can. When this will happen will be sometime in the next two weeks as we are awaiting a call as far as the surgery goes.
So if anything interests you on my In Stock pages, please by all means feel free to contact me..Also, as always..feel free to ask any questions you may have..
Thank you for your time and interest.

Update: What's coming up!!
Now that RPFS is over and done with...I would like to thanks those that dropped by and said hello..and those that purchased items as well..THANK YOU///
Now that RPFS is over and done..and my e-vile minions have returned the pieces that they have... I just want you all to know that these pieces will be posted shortly (in the next 24 to 48 hours)...
A note on the Japanese blades.. I will be posting several of them that are left, along with a couple of "hybrids" that I made using Japanese style blades that have been mounted in a "Western fashion"... However..during my annual post-Faire clean up of my studio I have found a few (<10) "Japanese" pieces that I have done that are more or less ready to mount.. Now I do not know what I am going to do with these..I may finish them up as Japanese swords, tanto and wakizashi or I may mount them in a different sort of mount. I do have a matched (more or less) pair of Katana and Wakizashi blades that are close to 80% done..I will be finishing these in the next few weeks and putting them up.. As far as the others..I will probably finish up the longer pieces in the Japanese style..the others...I do not know yet...so keep an eye out for them... Once these are finished..the Japanese stuff is DONE!! FINISHED!!! OVER!!!
I am working on several swords, daggers and axes presently and I will post updates as to when they are available...
So take a look later on today and see what I have up..
Thank you all for the interest..
