5 New Swords by Master Michael Ye for Forge Direct Chinese

To replace the 5 designs from forge direct that we permanently retired last month, we are delighted to announce 5 new designs that take their place. Starting from the most basic and working our way up..

Four Beasts Jian

The best value for money sword in the new selection – it’s an awesome classic Jian with detailed brass fittings depicting the four beasts from Chinese mythology and legend – The Dragon, White Tiger, Phoenix and Tortoise. Also available with a fittings upgrade with 24K gold and silver if you want to next level it.

Ghost-Banishing Sword

For over 2600 years, swords like this one were believed to banish bad luck and evil spirits. But as with all the Forge Direct blades, this is no mere ornament or lucky charm and is equally at home banishing home invaders or other bad guys as it is banishing evil spirits and bad luck. Complex folded steel octagonal blade geometry with lucky fittings. Upgraded version with darker fittings and 24k gold and silver plating available.

Dragon Tiger Jian

Another classic Qing Dynasty Jian with a folded and differentially hardended blade decked out with premium quality 24k gold and silver Dragon and Tiger themed fittings. Stunning and deadly.

Silver Dragon Sword

Unique Octagonal blade geometry with a prominent central ridge and curious star pattern in the folded steel that has to be seen to be believed. The design is perfected with premium quality 24k gold and silver Dragon themed fitting sets.

Fire Dragon Sword

Classic Tai Chi style folded and double sided differentially hardened blade with elite 24k gold and silver plated fittings with a rayskin handle and rayskin covered scabbard. Available in standard and green colored configurations – the pinnacle of the new Forge Direct selection.

Hope at least one of these new designs has your name on it! Check out our entire selection below:

Tatsumaki Special: June 2024

The Tatsumaki Katana by Dragon King is one of the finest swords in their extensive mid to high end range production Katana catalog and is on special at the LOWEST price it has ever been offered before until the end of June 2024.

The Tastumaki – The Legend Unfolds

As twilight paints the sky, the dragon stirs. Clouds gather, and lightning dances across the horizon. The Tatsumaki—the whirlwind—awakens. Its spiral of wind and debris ascends, heralding both destruction and protection. This is no ordinary katana; it is a force of nature.

Craftsmanship and Aesthetics

  • Blade: Forged from T10 high-carbon steel, the 28-inch blade bears the gunome-midare hamon—a mesmerizing pattern that mirrors the storm’s fury. Its edge, honed to perfection.
  • Guard and Hilt: Silver tsuba, fuchi, and fuchi-kashira depict the dragon, clouds, and lightning. The handle wrap, brown sageo, and golden saya complete the ensemble.
  • Scabbard: Golden and adorned with black carved wood, buffalo horn kurikata, and kojiri, the scabbard cradles the Tatsumaki’s power.


  • Overall Length: 40 1/2 inches
  • Blade Length: 28 inches
  • Handle Length: 11 3/8 inches
  • Weight: 2 lbs 5 oz

NEW: Doomsday Sword Number 10 by Scorpion Swords – Behind the Scenes and How It’s Made

It is the second Ragnarok inspired Viking blade in Jason Woodards Doomdsay Sword series and the second with a curious fusion of ancient Norse design with modern materials and blade making techniques – starting as it always does with a 1:1 scale sketched design.

After careful consideration of the overall design and individual design elements, Chris Palmer then creates and has cut out a Master Template in 1095 carbon steel.

The blank has some basic edge geometry ground in and the handle is drilled in 11 places where pins and epoxy will later bind the handle to the steel.

Edges are further refined and a narrow fuller is ground along the center of the blade on both sides, providing it it’s general shape and styling.

The entire blade is then heat treated to around 1500 degrees and then quenched in brine, hardening it, before the steel is heated a second time to approx 500 degrees and allowed to temper.

The tempered blade is cleaned up and polished, and has two blocks of Black Linen Mircarta pinned and epoxied on both sides in a classic hard wearing sandwich tang construction.

From there, the handle is ground to shape and has 5 additional brass pins inserted, for one of the strongest blade to handle and overall strength swords currently on the market,

Finally it is all cleaned up, the blade is given it’s final edge, the handle gets wrapped in deer leather (and if ordered, the optional scabbard is fitted and made).

And the end result, Doomsday Sword #10 – Viking Type 8, now available at the SBG Sword Store for just $279.99

Not bad for an entirely made by hand in the USA blade!
