Limited Edition Japanese Blades

NOTE: I am at the end of my series. I have 2 numbers left to fill and to be honest I am in no hurry to fill them due to "burn out" on doing so many. They will be filled but I will work on them every so often. So keep a look out and see..Once these are gone that is it for the series.

These swords are hand forged using only the finest steel and iron. all are hand made. The Samegawa is imported so are the other materials I use like the Tsuka-Ito, Kashirae and other parts . These are gorgeous swords. They are EXTREMELY SHARP and proper care must be taken when handling these blades.

 

 NOTE:  There are no numbers remaining. However, I am currently finishing up several more prototype/example pieces for book IV. I will be posting these as they are available.. I will be posting an update on my main page when they are near completion and again once they are complete and listed. So please check back often.. THANK YOU  ~~~JPH~~~

Please Note: I say again: The numbered series is now completed and there are no more pieces available in this series.; However, I still have a few book IV pieces that I am making for the Japanese Blade sections of that book. These will be available for sale as they are finished and photographed and they will be signed as book IV pieces on the nakago. 

These pieces will include Katana, Chisa Katana, Wakizashi,  Tanto and a few Naginata  ( the nagi's will be available as blades only!) so please check back to see what was added. THANK YOU ALL for the support of this  series. I greatly appreciate it!!

Items in Stock: 

 These are amongst the LAST of the Japanese blades that I will be making. There will be NO MORE after these unless I need  a piece for book IV. I have pretty much completed that section in my 4th book so...I do have to make a few smaller blades ..wakizashi mostly for illustration purposes for book IV and when those are done they will be posted here for sale.
