Or indeed, whatever the future may hold, these new Tactical Swords are the solution..
First off, our own contribution – the Tactical Gladius by Scorpion Swords…
Made from expertly tempered 1095 carbon steel, this heavy (2.5lbs) but compact blade has incredible chopping and thrusting power and would have been instantly adopted by the Roman army had they ever had the opportunity..
Seriously heavy duty, you can pick up this baby for just $249.99 exclusively HERE at the SBG Sword Store..
The second contribution to our growing arsenal of tactical blades is the new collaboration between the legendary Gus Trim and the skilled artisans at Dragon King – the 9260 Spring Steel A.P.O.C. Tactical series swords..
Arriving in mid July – these swords caused such a sensation at the 2017 Blade Show that they are certain to sell out before the majority of the people who want one can get one.. (after all – at just $119 and $189 respectively, these swords are priced to SELL) – so beat the rush and pre-order yours with SBG today..
In the meantime, for more information on this line, check out our recently added interview with Cas Iberia Product Manager Blake Pogue on the main site here.
It is one of their meanest swords to date – the viscous looking ‘Reaper’
While this sword gives a very modern ‘post apocalyptic’ feel to it, the basic design is over 2000 years old and based closely on the Greek Kopis, which in turn was believed to be influenced by the Egyptian Khopesh (a design Scorpion Swords excels at reproducing).
Hand made in the USA by Chris Palmer – like all the Scorpion Swords we offer – it is also extremely affordable at only $239.99 and is available to be shipped to a wide range of sword friendly countries around the world..

In the meantime, here are a some more glamor shots – click on any of the following pics for the high res version..
As many of you may already know, in March I took a trip to the Blade Culture International Forge in Pangasinan, the Philippines. For those of you who missed it, you can read the full write up of my experiences at their forge HERE on the main site.
Long story short, we were so impressed by their workmanship that we placed a couple of large orders with them – the second order, which is for medieval and Chinese swords, should be finished by the end of the month and available to purchase sometime in July. But the first shipment – which is entirely of exotic and affordable traditional Filipino Swords – has just landed and is now available to ship from the BCI warehouse in Stamford, Connecticut.
Below are some examples of some of the swords we have available and ready to ship.
Prices are extremely reasonable – almost every sword is sub $300 (the only exception is the Espada y Daga, which is $335 but includes a sword and fighting dagger in the one sheathe, so while it is the most expensive, it is a set of two blades)..
The only real problem is that stock levels are not very high and production times between restocks can be several months, so if you see something you like, you had best snap it up before it goes out of stock..

With the heat starting to turn up in the Northern Hemisphere – many sword enthusiasts are spending even more time outdoors, so the timing of this restock of the popular sword cutting stand is pretty much ideal..
This versatile stand is designed for tatami and goza rolls but the mounting peg can also accommodate the hole of a pool noodle or be removed and the flat surface of the stand used to place water filled bottles, making it the perfect stand for the modern cutter.
Naturally, we also offer Goza mats – stiffer and more challenging targets than standard tatami:
A box of 20 full mats runs at $179.99 plus $15 shipping in North America – but if you use thinner half mats (which almost have the same density as a standard tatami full mat) and get 3 cuts per target (you can do more if you are accurate) that is 120 cuts per box at $1.62 per cut – which if you have ever cut real mats before – you will know is worth every penny and then some (and if you HAVEN’T cut mats before – what are you waiting for).
Happy and safe cutting all..
Just a quick update – the Ronin Katana warehouse, which ships our range of Ronin Katana swords and products, will be closed from the 2nd of June to the 15th of June for an annual trip to the forge.
As such, orders can still be placed during this period but will not be processed or shipped until after they get back on the 15th. We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
