Limited Edition Japanese Style Blades
The above Dai-sho swords are my personal Batto/Jigen Ryo Tameshigiri swords in Kobuse 1070 with a wrought iron core, full true Hamon and in my own "Full Polish". Very simple, yet very elegant, These swords are NOT for sale.
These blades are part of my limited edition of 125 pieces. Once those are gone, that's it for a while..and I mean a loooong while at that. So if you are interested in a piece in this series..act quick cause they move rather quickly. The blades listed below are the LAST ones that are available in the series...So get these while you still can! Now that being said:
I have been getting some e-mails and calls about making "more traditional" length pieces. Now in answer to this I have come up with this: I am, going to be doing a "bare bones" sort of sword, Dai-sho mostly that will not be as fancy or as polished for cutting. While these will be priced at a very attractive level, these blade will still be the same high quality as the others, the differences being in the fittings, and polish. These will still show Hamon (some of which are downright gorgeous) but they will not be as flashy or elaborate in the mounts. Hopefully these will be something that folks are interested in so please take a look.
OK.. I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN: THE BELOW PIECES ARE THE LAST OF THE SERIES..PERIOD. I have three more numbers to fill and as I said above once these are gone that is it! I have no idea as to when I will finish the last three but it will be several months (at least) until those are done. So it you want one I suggest that you act most haste as these will be gone rather quickly. With that being said:
The Japanese blades that I currently available are:

Limited Edition "Dark Ages" Swords
My first limited edition blades went so well, and as a way to generate needed capital for upcoming surgery I am doing a Limited Edition of 25 pieces total of "Dark Age" swords. These will all have pattern welded/laminated blades in a variety of patterns. Some will be simple laminate others will be more complex composite patterns. Hilts will also vary but will remain within the "Dark Ages" period.
All of these swords are fully hand forged, hand ground and hand finished. Each one is unique and one of a kind
These swords will be marked with my 8R/heart chop and numbered 1 to 25. These are very powerful blades and cut very well. All come with a leather sheath and fully sharpened.
The ones we currently have available are below:

The throwing axes I make are forged in several different ways depending upon the style of the blade...All include a medium carbon steel bit for the edge. Some are folded and welded..some have the body slit, forged, opened for the handle and then have the edge inset. Either way is "traditional". All of my axes are slow rust browned finished as I have found that this is a very durable finish for an axe. The browning process I employ is proprietary, developed after years of research, but it does result in a very attractive, and durable "tawny brown" coloured finish that is quite durable as well as pleasing to the eye.
All of my throwing axes use the same type of handle..the more or less " standard tomahawk handle" that is available from various "muzzle loaders" or "Mountain Man" suppliers. Now due to the nature of hand forging some fitting of the new handle may be required but that is up to you..a few minutes with a wood rasp and some sand paper and you are ready to go...
At present we have the following in stock:
All pieces have been sold.will be posting more in a little while after my upcoming hand surgery
