We have landed in Florida and we are pulling permits this week for the new studio. We are more or less unpacked with some smaller stuff still needing to be done but everyone made the trip down and we all are doing fine.

UPDATE: I am trying to get to my stock as I have a half dozen high carbon steel swords to post along with a BEAUTIFUL Ladder patterned Bastardsword along with a couple of my book IV  Japanese blade Protoypes that need to be posted as well...Hopefully once we get the cameras all charged up and a few small things dealt with the next couple of days I will be be able to get the photos taken and the items listed.. As it is ALL items already posted are in stock and ready to go.

Our new address is:

Salamander Armoury 

4142 Mariner Blvd # 148

Spring Hill, FL 34609


So please take a look and see if anything speaks to you...I am still a bit short on the studio funds..need another $12,000.00 to $15,000.00 finish the build. The building itself is paid in full..now it is slab and electric time...So I will be posting he new items ASAP..once I get the photos taken.

Thank you all for you interest in us here at Salamander Armoury.



First I would like to wish a Merry Christmas to those that celebrate that Holiday as well as a  joyous Yalda to my fellow Zoroastrians..

Well all we ARE MOVING this weekend (the weekend of the 23rd) and we should be ion our new location a few days after that. I will be out of the loop as far as telephone communication goes however I will, if able, be checking my e-mail during the trip if we can find a wi-fi spot.

I wish to thank everyone who took advantage of my sale...I do have  a few more items that will be listed on this site around the first of the year that will include: 5 high carbon swords, one KILLER pattern welded Bastard sword, as well as the LAST of the Japanese prototypes that I did for book IV.

Speaking of books...My first three are back in print as of Jan 01 2018...I will be posting contact information on those after the first of the year.

So..we are off for an adventure...I still have to build a studio and that will take a bit of time and well..I will be  posting as things progress. THANK YOO ALL ONCE AGAIN!!




This is an update. Well my daughter had her baby, Sebastian Michael, on Oct 23rd..So now I am a papuli...Boy am I feeling OLD... So they both are doing well now that the little scare is over....so,.now onto the update.

First: We are moving to Florida...we should be out of Nevada and down south around the 20th of December. We will be putting the new address up and phone number when we get down there. Now my e-mail contact will not change so you can always write until we get everything in place so feel free to write in at any time. 

Second: I will need to build a new studio so I will be "down" for about 45 to 60 days or so while that is happening which brings me to this:

I need a bit more money than I have on hand for the studio so I am having a sale...with a small difference. I am putting up the sale prices as usual however I will also take a best offer on any piece I have in stock. Just give me a call or drop me an e-mail and we can discuss the pieces...  I need to move ALOT of cutlery so I can get the new place built the way I want it. So please take a look..I am adding new pieces as fast as I can so if anything interests you by all means...let me know.

In closing..Thank you for your interest...



Two more Pattern Welded pieces have been posted to our In Stock Pages.. One is a rather impressive large dagger with a "Bovine Ivory" grip in my "Solar Storm" pattern.. a  very dramatic and "powerful" blade... and the other is a rather elegant, yet intimidating  pattern welded "Bowie" style knife in my "Solar Storm" with a blackened "Bovine Ivory" grip and silver mounts..a very sophisticated yet brutal knife.. Both are ready for immediate sale.. So please take a look..

More pieces will be posted shortly including the Japanese  style blade prototypes that I mentioned in an earlier update..

So take a look and more items will be posted as they are completed..

THANK YOU for your time and interest.



This is a MAJOR UPDATE..... Things are changing here at Salamander Armoury..So without further adieu let's get into it.

FIRST!!  We are MOVING..Yes after some 25 years in Nevada we are MOVING down south. We should complete the move by the end of this year and be back up and running sometime around the later part of January/earl February 2018. WE ARE NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. In fact I will be still here in Nevada while Sue is down securing the property as well as helping me arrange for a new studio to be built. The plan is for me to continue to work here for the next 2 1/2 months or so and then move everything studio wise down there.. so not to worry..I am still hammering away and will for as long as I can up here prior to the final move...In fact I intend to work as many extra hours as I can in order to get stuff up and posted here for direct sale, so please stop by and take a look

SECOND: This one is a heart breaker.. This last June, my publisher Peder Lund passed on while in Finland... I just gotten word that as of 31 Dec, 2017 Paladin Press..the publishing house that has been so very good to me and has kept my books in print for the last 30 some odd years is closing their doors. This means that as of Jan 1, 2018 my books will no longer be available for original sale.  HOWEVER....all copyrights and properties entailed in my books and my videos revert back to me on 1 Jan, 2018 and I am already in the process of speaking with a new publishing house to get these books back in print and once more available. I WILL keep you all posted on this as things progress.

Third!! NEW STUFF!!!  We have a lot of new stuff up and ready for immediate sale...Axes!! a whole mess of them...Spears!! a passel full of those as well..and some more pattern welded blades, including a really unique (I call it weird..but what Hell..) , fantasy inspired cross between a shamshir and yatagan.  A most wicked blade indeed with a drop dead patterning  and just plain gorgeous.. It is a monster that is for certain.. 

Fourth: I have decided due to all the calls and e-mail I have been getting to list several of my prototype pieces I made for the Japanese section of my 4th book...These are signed as prototypes as well as the materials used and blade construction. I will be listing these this weekend. With all of the interest in these, I can honestly say these pieces will probably move quickly so if you have an interest in one of them..ACT swiftly cause once these are gone..that is it.

So..that's the scoop on what is going on around here...so please take a look and see what we have that is new and exciting  offered for sale.  As always,  if you would like any additional photos or have any questions about anything listed on our site, please,  by all means feel free to ask.

In closing...THANK YOU for your time and interest in us here at Salamander Armoury, it is greatly appreciated.
