Hello and a Happy 2019!

 All of us here at Salamander Armoury would like to send our wishes for a Happy 2019 to all of you and yours.....

Well I am entering my 5th decade of making blades and I plan on another couple decades after this..which brings up to an UPDATE!!

New Items on the "In Stock" pages as well as a couple of older pieces that I took in for trade a long while back that somehow got packed away and I have just rediscovered them..these are all available for immediate sale.. So please take a look...

All in all I am back to work and starting to finally get back up to my usual level of production after that 7 and a half month hiatus..So please check back in a day or two for another very interesting announcement..

Until then, best wishes to all and thank you for your continued interest.



UPDATE!!  New Items Posted!!

Hello!!  I just posted several new pattern welded blades and are they GORGEOUS!! So, if would be so kind as to take a look at what is new on our "In Stock" pages I think you may find something to pique your interest! One of these is a brand new pattern (well i think I am the first to do this) that I have posted... Take a look!! It is GORGEOUS!!

What is coming:.. I am starting a run of high carbon swords, war hammers and a few high carbon daggers as soon as I am finished with this last few pattern welded pieces.. Once they are completed I will post when they are ready to go.. In the mean time..

I will be finishing up all sorts of little "odds and ends" pieces  as they "come up"  some will be very interesting as they say.... so please check in every now and then to see what is new..You may be surprised.. In fact, I know you will because I know what I am working on  (heh heh heh)..

We here at Salamander Armoury want to say THANK YOU to all of you who have been "there" for us.. We greatly appreciate your support over all of these years, especially this last year..for without your generous support we wouldn't be "here"  (Jim is in his 50th ...YES 50th!! year of bladesmithing we are going stronger than ever !!!) hammering out high quality blades hand forged by a Master Smith.. Thank you...




I just listed some really NICE pattern welded pieces on the "In Stock" pages.. and more are coming!!

UPDATE!! We are back!! I am back in the swing as they say after a close to 7 month hiatus due to the move from Henderson down here to Spring Hill..  I am still getting use to the new studio..I am spending about half of my time trying to remember where I put stuff in our new studio..I have half again as much room than our old one and well..it's nice but I am still getting use to it!!

What is coming... I am doing a run of sgain dubhs in both pattern welded and high carbon steel..The first ones should be up this weekend..I will be putting out another update when they are done and listed.

So take a peek at the new items and if you have any questions or would like any additional photos..all you have to do is ask!

I want to thank you all for your continued support and patronage. It is GREATLY appreciated indeed!!

Best to all!!




An update!! This fall I enter my 50th year in Bladesmithing! What a ride it has been so far...and I wish to thank all that have supported me over the years and well..I am not planning on quitting any time soon so here's to whatever the future may hold!!

Which brings us to this: NEW ITEMS!

Finally I am up and running and the first few "Florida Made" blades are up and available on my in stock pages. These are NICE pieces and honestly..I am feeling it as far as the down time I had moving and building our new studio... However these blades turned out GREAT even though they did take a bit longer to make than usual thanks to my being a bit "rusty". Worry not..I am well on the way to bouncing back to my usual cantankerous self..  So take a peak and see what's new/// More blades are on the way....

As always if you have any questions, or wish any additional photos, simply ask..I will do my best to address your inquiries.. 

THANK YOU ALL for 50 years of adventure...



An update and a great one at that!!  WE ARE BACK UP AND RUNNING...Although it took us about twice as long as we anticipated due to various things that popped up outside of our control we are FINALLY back up and running.

All of our equipment is in and working..we have everything under control and I am trying to replace the stolen materials and tooling that was taken from the storage in Nevada as best as I can but we are operational and I am finally back to swinging a hammer. Now what does this mean?

This means that I will be posting new items, more pattern welded blades both large and small and everything in between. More of everything else simply due to the fact that I need everything else like high carbon knives, swords, daggers as well as war hammers and welded cable items as well... I am also back to filling the last several orders that were taken before we left Nevada and these are back in the queue to go!!

Also I have another Japanese sword prototype that I did for book IV that I will list this evening..I will put a post up when it is all set. It is a gorgeous Chisa Katana..a Gen III sword..

All in all it has been one Hell of a ride and with the help and support of those generous folks we MADE IT!!  THANK YOU all for your support and concern.. I appreciate that greatly and I will never, ever forget it!..

THANK YOU all once again!
