Scratch and Dent Sale

Listed in late March 2020 - here is a selection of scratch and dent sale items, one offs, returned items and other swords - all with clearly marked descriptions of the issue (and photos whenever possible) - all being liquidated at true BARGAIN prices.

As there is only one of each piece available, if you see something you like you had best pull the trigger on it before someone else beats you to it. Please note that unless DOA, all sales of these items are final and no returns are possible.

ALL ITEMS SOLD

19726-02-1

$599.99 $1,200.00

SOLD

Folded version of the Shoshu Kitae Master Smith blades from Project X with upgraded mother of pearl saya.

20989-1
Scratch & Dent Forge Direct Duan Dao 20989
$299.99 $779.99

SOLD

The Forge Direct Chinese Laminated Duan Dao.

Scratch and Dent Issue: Blade was warped during heat treatment and could not be corrected. Was accidentally shipped, should not have passed QC. Warp is not significant enough to effect actual cutting performance.

20788-1
Scratch & Dent Forge Direct Yi Dao 20788
$499.99 $1,650.00

SOLD

The Tang Dynasty Yi-Dao by Forge Direct Chinese.

Scratch and Dent Issue: This one should NOT have passed QC, with multiple minor issues that should never have been present on a sword valued at close to $2000 (primarily, an inferior blade polish) - hence the stupidly deep discount (see description for the full details).

SOLD

26" T10 Differentially Hardened Master Smith blade with partial bo-hi and premium blue/black themed fittings - a rejected Forge Direct Japanese Elite Custom Katana ($699.99).
