Just a quick update – the forge direct Mega-Sale just finished a few minutes ago and as explained previously, is now archived and unavailable to order until further notice.
Our Master Smith has received quite a nice boost of orders to keep him busy when he gets back to work at the end of the month, and all the people who took advantage of the 25% discount special offer should be receiving their swords sometime in mid December.
For the time being, we have moved the entire selection to the ARCHIVES – but just in case this line never comes back, here is selection of the most popular designs from the sale..
I really do hope that this will not be the end of the Forge Direct Chinese Sword Project – these really are stunningly beautiful swords literally dripping with 2500 years of history and it would be such a shame to see it all come to an end.
Hopefully our modest contribution of orders from the sale will help keep the forge going long enough to see another few rounds, but only time will tell..
Here’s hoping that we will see them all again soon.
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.
