We have had a lot of requests for an extension over the last 10 days..
And since this is such a rare opportunity (these swords have only been offered once or at the most twice over the past 5 years) we were able to convince the Master Smiths to grant us a 5 day extension..
So if you have an interest in getting your hands on one of these rare, heirloom quality Soshu Kitae Laminated blades – you have exactly 5 days to go before this window of opportunity slams shut and the next opportunity to buy, is unclear and unknown..
It has been several years since we have offered the heirloom quality Soshu Kitae laminated Japanese swords from the Master Smiths at Project X..
And with upward pricing pressures on materials, labor and shipping – it has become increasingly hard to be able to offer these amazing blades at such a relatively low price point.. (honestly, in the $1000 price range – Project X stands head and shoulders above every other sword simply because the VALUE you get dollar for dollar, pound for pound, is off the chart.. These swords should be priced to make a healthy profit – but instead we mark up just enough to ensure we at least break even)..
So after EXTENSIVE negotiations with the forge we are delighted to be able to offer you these swords direct from the forge WITHOUT increasing prices – making this your golden opportunity to get any of the classic models released since 2012 (see below)..
The only catch is – we can only hold open the door for new commissions from now until the 5th of July.. Which means that there is officially less than 10 days to secure your order before the door slams shut again (and we are not certain when we will ever be able to offer the whole line up like this in the future)..
So, long story short – if you want to secure one of the highest quality Katana made outside of Japan (at a fraction of what it would cost to have it made IN Japan) – this limited time re-release is for YOU..
It took a little longer than expected to finalize the details – but we are delighted to announce that the Forge Direct Chinese Mega Spring Sale is finally here!
With 8 new models added to the line up and EVERYTHING discounted by 25% (including the new models) this is an amazing chance to get the best traditional Chinese swords spanning over 2500 years of history at the best possible price..
We have had a few requests for a ‘little more time’ to purchase the limited edition Project X Jian of Marquis Yi..
So Master Xiaolong kindly extended the offer for another 3 days with a new deadline of midnight (EST) the 10th of April..
After this deadline, there will be NO additional extensions and we are not certain when we will be able to offer you this heirloom quality sword again (at the very least it will be one more year before it is offered again – at worst, this may be the LAST chance – we never really know with these limited edition Project X swords..)
As such, if you have been sitting on the fence – THIS is your final chance.
This will be the first and final time it will be offered in 2017 (this is only the third run of this sword since 2013) and it’s availability depends on how many pre-orders come in. Based on the times it has been offered previously, we expect to close off taking new orders mid April, but it may be even sooner.. We will do our best to keep you posted here but if it ends suddenly and you miss out, please accept our apologies – we really do need to limit the number of swords we offer on this design as the very second the forge says ‘enough’ we need to stop orders and send it back to the archive..
In other Forge Direct News – we also just updated our options for the stunning Muramasa Laminated Katana.
Now with full customization options, if you don’t like the base design – you can now make it your own. And the best price, while we had to raise the price $99 for the time being it is still on sale at the original price of $700, meaning the world of customization we opened up on it are completely free of charge..!
And finally, a sneak preview of some new Forge Direct Chinese swords coming down the line..
7 New Jian are being prepared to join the current rotation and some older models will be shuffling off the line into the archives to make room. So stay tuned for this – Spring is when the forges do their best work – and next month the new models will kick off with a limited time promotional sale.
Lots more going on behind the scenes so I need to get back to it and will update you all again VERY soon.
