Three New Blades from Ryujin Swords

(Plus a couple more Hot Special Katana for good measure!)

It has often been noted that smaller, more compact sword types are the most appropriate self defense swords for the modern era. While a full length Katana might look intimidating, they need a LOT of space to wield properly – and in the heat of the moment it is all too easy for it to end up getting caught up in a ceiling fan, light fixture, sofa or even hit the floor and shatter on an overswing..

But a slightly shorter blade means that not only can you keep more control in a chaotic situation, but shorter blades are FASTER, more DURABLE and much more VERSATILE – and while it is possible that an opponent may get too close and jam up the arc of a full length Katana, shorter blades are much harder to get past the point..

So with this in mind, our friends at Ryujin have released not just one but THREE new Wakizashi and Ko Katana designs, starting with one of the most practical and affordable packages out there..

The first two swords in the new series are made from monotempered, hard wearing 65mn spring steel to really bring out and reinforce the durability inherent in shorter bladed swords. Combine this with a modern, practical leather scabbard and modern ‘fused to the sword’ handle and the end result is a short bladed, one or two handed Ko Katana that is an absolute bargain at just $74.99 (and comes in two ‘flavors’ – the base version with black fittings and shiny steel blade, and an ‘urban ninja’ configuration with a black finished blade).

Ko Katana with Steel Finish Blade – $74.99

Ko Katana with Black Finish Blade – $74.99

And for the more traditionally minded, nothing beats a differentially hardened one handed Wakizashi – and again, Ryujin comes to the forefront with their new ‘OKami Wolf’ Wakizashi – a T10 tool steel blade with black textured saya, blue ito wrap over genuine rayskin and a classic blade with real hamon temper line, normally $239.99 but available while stocks last at the introductory special price of $199.99.

Ryujin T10 Tool Steel – “OKami Wolf” Wakizashi – $199.99

So now if you prefer something modern and tactical or traditional and visually stunning, Ryujin has you covered!

Check these out and more in both the NEW ADDITIONS and RYUJIN OFF THE SHELF categories in the SBG Sword Store today:

P.S. While we are listing new Ryujin special offers, there are a couple more models that have been reintroduced – two T10 tool steel Katana pre-configured and priced to sell at the same price as the Wakizashi!

Ryujin T10 Tool Steel Katana – the Kamakiri

Awesome deals no matter which way you look at them!

And then there is the unique mid-priced Katana from Dragon King, the Tenka Fubu – a stunning T10 tool steel blade with blood red saya (complete with buffalo horn accents) and all the fittings as tributes to the great historical figure and renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Oda Nobunaga.

Normally the MSRP price on this historical tribute sword is $879 and it is on sale in our store for $628.98. But like the arming sword, it is on sale until the end of the month – and the price – just $525.95.

John Boorman Inspired Excalibur Sword Closeout Sale

With a blade inspired by the 1981 classic film Excalibur by John Boorman, who was in turn inspired by a painting of a historical 11th century Scottish sword, the replica by Legacy Arms (formerly Generation 2) is a timeless classic..

While there are quite a few minor points of difference from the original blade as seen in the movies (pictured above, currently housed in the London Film Museum) – primarily a smaller pommel and crossguard, longer hilt and different blade geometry, the basic elements are all in place: from the solid brass fittings, wire wrapped handle and overall appearance – but make no mistake, the replica by Legacy Arms is a fully functional BEAST of a sword.

It was one of the first swords I ever reviewed on SBG, and while there have been several special offers over the years (when it is actually in stock that is!) with Legacy Arms moving to a new supplier, it is time for the original model to be retired – and to help the last of the stock move we are offering it at a CRAZY discounted price point..

Indeed, our recent price break on all Legacy arms Swords saw it reach it lowest historical price EVER of $399.99 – but from now until the end of the month and while stocks last you can pick this classic blade up for the ridiculously low price of just $299.99!

Considering that until recently the best price on this sword was $475 and it went as high as $519 – it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that at the current $299.99 closeout price this classic model will not be around for much longer. So don’t miss out, grab this bargain while you can, I assure you that you will not be disappointed.
