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..
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 the best selling, most popular high end swords in the Paul Chen Hanwei line up. But from now until the 2nd of July, you can pick up the AWESOME great wave Katana for BELOW WHOLESALE pricing at just $499,99..

Weighing 2lbs 10oz and with a point of balance 5″ from the tsuba, the Great Wave delivers incredibly powerful, authoritative cuts – the Great Wave is the complete package, suitable for display, backyard cutting or serious dojo applications – and can be yours at over 50% off the recommended retail price..
But only until the 2nd of July and while stocks last..
In the meantime, here are some pics taken from the SBG sword forum of the sword in question (click on the pics for a larger resolution picture).. For $960 it is good value for money. At $500 – an absolute steal..
Premium quality rayskin, ito wrap and iron fittings with Tomoe theme..
The demon menuki looks cool peeking out behind ultra tight ito wrap..
Stunning looking gold plated tomoe crest on the iron kashira
An of course, the differentially hardened T10 tool steel blade
Gotta love that rare ultra long ‘O-kissaki’ tip..
And a shot ‘under the hood’ – THIS is what a beefy full tang SHOULD look like..
Just a very quick note, Batch 41 of the SBG Custom Katana officially closed off a few minutes ago and we will be spending the next couple of days confirming each order and making sure that all the details are correct and accommodate any last minute changes before we send the batch over to the forge to bring all the great new designs to life..
In the meantime, as the SBG Custom Katana will not be available to order again until at least mid September, we have temporarily moved the Custom Katana sales page HERE to the archives section.
We will post the occasional update here and email our customers with progress reports as the forge works away. In the meantime, thanks for your orders and talk again soon..!
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..
