Scratch and Dent Sale

We just added four one off scratch and dent/used swords to the Hot Specials section that are up for grabs – two from the Black Dragon Forge and two from Project X.

Here are the swords currently available:

SanMai Laminated Black Dragon Forge Katana

This one has the works – leather ito wrap, rayskin wrapped saya, Sanmai lamination and all black fittings, but seasonal weather changes caused the wooden tsuka to shrink slightly, so it had to be permanently attached. Price for it as new would be $654.99 but available to one lucky, quick person for just $369.99 with FREE SHIPPING to Canada or the USA.

Last Black Dragon Elite

This is the VERY LAST of the SBG Black Dragon Elites – they cannot be made this way again as both the fittings and the Mother of Pearl Saya are no longer available to us. It does have a couple of minor issues – like the first sword it cannot be disassembled and the Mother of Pearl inlay is a bit blurry/imperfect…

But for the $369.99 price tag (and also with FREE SHIPPING to the USA and Canada) it is quite the bargain, and as you can see from the pics, the blade is of course, absolutely stunning..

And then there are the two swords from Project X – both rare and pretty much impossible to get anytime soon.

The first is a Feathersteel Jian with some minor cosmetic imperfections of the fittings that was remade for the original customer. Normal price, $1,600 – but this last one is available for less than half price at $750..

And then there is a Hybrid Wakizashi/Ko Katana that was lightly used and has been returned, a sword that is no longer available to purchase, so this will be the last chance to EVER get this particular design – for $200 less than the original purchase price with NO waiting..

Only one of each sword is available, and once they are gone they are gone for good.

Limited Release – 3 New Swords from the Legendary Swords Project!

We have already seen one early bird release ahead of the scheduled beta launch of our dedicated Battle Ready Fantasy Sword website, the Legendary Swords Project – Odin’s Oar by John Lundemo and KC Lund..

But at $2750, it is outside the range of the average sword buyer. So here are some offerings for everyone else..!


The first three swords from the Legendary Swords series by Scorpion Swords!

As this is a limited release ahead of the launch of the official site, there are ONLY 10 PCS OF EACH DESIGN AVAILABLE TO PRE-PURCHASE. Once we have reached 10 orders of each design, then they will not be available again until the site is officially launched.

So here they are for you early birds out there – 3 extremely tough, hard wearing 1095 carbon steel blades designed by members of the SBG community..


The Early Aeultian Gladius: $329.99

The magical sidearm of the Aelutian Imperial Legionnaires, this sword was in use for over 2000 years. The legend of this sword is that it is made from ‘Coronatite’, is nearly indestructible and has armor piercing qualities – which isn’t far from the reality of this tough, hard wearing Fantasy Gladius..

Sword of the Goblin King $284.99

This wicked, spiky, mean sword with dark moon glyphs looks like any other Goblin sword in Eletreus. But this poisoned blade made from ‘Goblin Steel’ belongs to the notorious and mysterious Goblin King of Shamble Island and has been enchanted by powerful and sinister Goblin magic.

Priced to sell and with limited availability, this is a great chance to grab a piece of SBG history before the official launch of the Legendary Swords website.

So enjoy folks – these truly are original BATTLE READY fantasy sword designs that we hope will spark a new trend in the sword industry!

New: The Ryujin Custom Katana – Bamboo introductory special!

Over the years, there have been several extremely good value for money swords on the market either called ‘the bamboo’ or with a bamboo themed koshirae set.

So it is only fitting that our latest sub version of the full Ryujin Custom Katana should adopt this tradition as it own – after all, these are some of the best cutting, hard wearing traditional Katana blades you can get on the market for under $300.

But with this special deal, the value for money factor is off the charts.

For just $179.99 you get a T10 tool steel blade with real hamon temper line, your choice of a bo-hi option (for a faster, lighter sword) or a no-hi/solid bodied blade version (for a powercutter), iron bamboo themed tsuba, iron fittings and your choice of 5 different tsuka/handle colors and 7 different saya/sheathes!

PLUS, we are also bringing back the pre-Christmas sale price on our other newest Ryujin custom option sword, the sleek, slimline Aikuchi series custom Katana.

Happy New Year – back to business as usual

Happy New Year for 2018 – hope that this year is going to be a fantastic one for you all.

We certainly have a lot of new projects coming due this year, from a relaunch of Forge Direct Chinese and Forge Direct Japanese to the beta launch of our Fantasy Swords website and exclusive lines, and much, much more..!

Anyway, just wanted to post a quick note to let you know that almost all the delayed orders from between Christmas to New Years have started moving, shipping companies are back doing their thing and our suppliers have all woken up from a brief holiday rest and we are officially back to business as usual.

Talk to you all again soon!

NEW From Kingston Arms, the Renaissance Side Sword

It has been many years since the sword industry has been robust enough to offer something a bit different than a new Katana, medieval Longsword or even a new medieval arming sword. Almost all other designs simply do not sell well enough for the industry to take a risk..

But Kingston Arms are giving it a red hot go with a new Renaissance Side Sword design based on an Original German sword that ticks all the boxes.

  • It is sharp – and makes for a great cut and thrust design
  • It is robust – 5160 Spring Steel blade with the overall durability Kingston Arms have become famous for
  • It is beautiful – from the partially fullered blade to the complex swept hilt design
  • And it is economical – at $369 – though even more affordable at SBG for just $289.99 and includes FREE SHIPPING!

Truly a stunning, fast and responsive design – this is a must for every sword collector who is sick of seeing the same old same old..

Now if you will excuse me, it is time to get back to my so called vacation.. 🙂

P.S. In addition to this new sword by Kingston Arms, Cas Iberia have restocked a lot of the popular Hanwei Forge Swords by Paul Chen, including one of my favorite cutters due to its speed, low price and extremely keen edge, the $189.99 Chinese Gongfu Dao.. Check out everything that is available in the Hanwei section here – we list all the items that are in stock first and everything out of stock towards the bottom, so no need to scoll all the way down the page unless you really, really want to..
