Forge Direct Optional Extra - Custom Blade and Saya LengthBe the first one to write a review
UPGRADE YOUR FORGE DIRECT ORDER
Select a non-standardized blade length (full custom option) for either Forge Direct or Project X Japanese.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Can ONLY be applied to Forge Direct or Project X Custom Katana Orders. Due to ongoing supply chain issues may delay your order by up to 4-6 months..
Due to ongoing and rather extreme disruptions to the supply chain - saya (the sheathe for a Japanese sword) need to be made many months in advance to keep lead times as reasonable as possible. Thus, every blade and every saya made for Forge Direct and Project X need to be kept to a standard length (28") which is suitable for almost every modern day sword enthusiast.
However if you REALLY need a special custom length it will need to be set aside and custom made from start to finish - increasing both the cost but especially the lead time (typically by 4-6 months).
Otherwise, for the vast majority of people, a 28" nagasa blade will do fine.
