Sunday 23rd August, 2020

Originally planned for release in February 2020 – the pandemic has pushed the date back 6 months. But we are finally ready – a date has been set, and Project X Japanese will start a new batch in..

At 7:00AM US Eastern Standard Time, Project X Japanese opens for the first and the last time in 2020.

While you wait, we recommend two things.

Firstly, take a look at the Project X Japanese explanation pages right here on this blog. There are many great high resolution pictures of the blades, available fittings and pretty everything you need to know.

For example, click on the pic of the ‘Torakami’ style set below for ultra high resolution pic (click the magnify button and there is no detail you CANNOT see clearly – click the ‘back’ button when you are done as its actually opened in a new page).

But the second step is perhaps one of the most important

if you want to beat the rush, secure your order and get special deals and VIP treatment, sign up to the Project X Newsletter on this page here and then check out all the designs and options by clicking the link below.


P.S. Remember, you cannot place your order yet. We are only making 20 swords, and available pre-order slots fill up faster than – well, something that fills up really fast (sorry, I am terrible at examples sometimes).

We will let you know with a series of ‘progress bars’ that show how far along we are before the batch is filled up. So it will start off like this,

From the feedback I am getting, in the first few hours, could end up looking like this:

And when you see this one..

You might just have left it too late..

P.P.S. New selection of Elite Mother of Pearl Saya in our optional extras section (though please note, these are almost exclusively for Katana only – check the description here for more info

P.P.P.S. I really can’t stress how much of a good idea it is to sign up to the Project X newsletter. Seriously, trust me on this one: SIGN UP HERE

Imagine you could get a high quality, well made cutting Katana that won’t cut into your wallet, but sails through standard targets like a knife through butter.

A good, traditional cutting Katana with a real hamon is normally around something like $300 to $500 or so and goes way up from there. But the thing is, in most cases a lot of the money you are paying goes into the appearance of the fittings and the extras.

And that kinda wastes money if all you want is something affordable for the backyard or dojo. Such as the Yanone Katana by Dragon King – normally priced at $400, sold at our store for $300…

With our Special Price Deal on the Dragon King Yanone Katana, you’ll get:

  • A beautifully hand crafted 65mn Spring Steel blade with real hamon, crisp lines and a clean polish. Here is where the money is focused.
  • Unique Silver colored habaki and seppa instead of boring old brass
  • Synthetic rayskin for those concerned about the use of animal products in your sword
  • Great assembly and construction, ready to cut straight out of the box
  • Detailed and ornate solid iron fittings for maximum durability
  • And just everything you need for a good cutting sword without any unnecessary ‘bling’

All for just $229.99!

… Of course, you can let this opportunity pass you buy and spend a lot more money on a sword that many not even perform half as well.

Here’s how it performs, straight out of the box by untrained backyard cutters and members of the CAS Iberia team cutting tough Mugen Dachi Tatami mats with ease:

If you’re ready to get a high quality, well made cutting Katana that won’t cut into your wallet, but sails through standard targets like a knife through butter, you’ll want to take advantage of our special now.

Because , this offer may well run out before the end of the month, when the deal will be withdrawn once and for all.

It’s too good a deal to let this one pass you by..


Sword Specials and a very Special Sword..

From today until the end of the month, whether you are a fan of Western or Eastern blades, Hanwei and Dragon King have you covered – and we pass the steep discounts directly to YOU. How Steep?

YUP, a whopping $100 discount on both swords coming from the official distributor, so as usual, we pass these massive savings on to YOU!

The first sword is truly one of their finest medieval blades to date, the Sword of Saint Maurice – a fine replica of an Oakeshott Type XI.4 with its massive 37″ blade.

While the wood core scabbard is nothing to write home about, the sword itself is in a league of its own, even the fittings are engraved to give it the most authentic style possible – the engraving reading ‘CHRISTUS VINCIT, CHRISTUS REINAT, CHRISTUS INPERAT.’ (Christ Conquers, Christ Rules, Christ Emperor).

It’s a long blade, and a lot of work goes into forging and tempering it – so the normal MSRP on this one is $500. As usual, we offer you our manufacturer direct discount bringing the price down to just $362.98 – but until the end of the month you can save $100 and pick it up for an insane $262.98!!

For those of you who prefer Katana, what could be more appropriate than the tough Summer Lotus by Dragon King.

Designed with durability in mind, this monotempered 5160 spring steel blade is anything but run of the mill in both appearance and strength. While the iron sukashi tsuba and the black ito and sageo are pretty common, it is rare to see SILVER habaki, notched seppa and a unique army green, textured saya to minimize the appearance of scratches.

MSRP on this sword is $449 – we normally sell it with a $110 discount. But until the end of the month save another $100 and you can get it for the insane price of $229.99!

But the last one, well – it’s not technically on special – though it’s so rare we could charge the MSRP and it would still be sold out in a couple of days. Hanwei’s Most Popular Katana Sword to date..

YES, the reproduction of the sword from the Samurai Assassin Cult Classic Lone Wolf and Cub – the Dragon King Ogami Itto Katana.

Do we really need to say more? Normally the MSRP is $1,200 but despite there being so few available with such high demand, we still offer them to you at the best deal around for just $799.99. But you need to be ULTRA FAST or you will definitely miss out on this one.

Attempting to resurrect International Shipping..

Our fellow sword brothers and sisters around the world have had a very hard time the last couple of years – at it’s worse, we closed down every single Non North American shipment earlier this year. But the time has come to re-evaluate the situation.

At the end of the day, there are a handful of countries that still allow USPS (United States Postal Service) shipments – so we have added in most of the countries that we could ship to before.

But more than just this, we are also in the process of updating the page on Forwarding Services, as we have found a few that seem ‘weapon’ friendly, or at least tolerant.. But we need more information, more feedback from International buyers who purchased within the last 3 months or so on the SBG Forums and Facebook.

So please, help us to help you guys and let us know your country, what the item was and how it all went..



Will a solution be found? Well, the time has come to try our hardest.. So please share this information with every Non North American sword collecting friend so they can weigh in and we can, it is hoped, get the clearest picture of where we are up to now and where things are headed..

Thanks all,
