Apologies to everyone waiting on the Dragon Dao pre-orders, there was a bit of a delay at customs but they cleared, have been inspected and we have set aside the best ones to send you early next week. And they are truly awesome..
The bad news is that the ones we planned to sell ex-stock, well, they aren’t as good.
As I am currently doing a bit of a write up for the November 1st edition of the Sword Buyers Digest Online Magazine, I might as well save myself a little time and just repeat what is going to be written there about Project X Chinese in a good news/bad news format.
So here goes, as appearing in the November 1st edition:
The good news: all the swords are in, and those customers who pre-ordered the Dragon Dao are going to get some of the best quality Chinese Broadswords EVER seen in North America (shipping out early next week).
The bad news: The stock we have at hand of the Dragon Dao are, however, inferior. The blades are great. But the scabbards in particular did not arrive in happy condition..
The good news: This means that there will be some bargains appearing soon as a scratch and dent sale. And I mean SERIOUSLY marked down prices..
The bad news: Well, bad news for us because we lose money (always a risk when you try something new and innovative).
The good news: Anyone who has a Project X Dragon Dao of Marquis Yi already can feel comfortable knowing no more will follow. This is it. And its also good news for those fans of Project X Japanese because the next Project X swords will be those laminated beauties…
The bad news: There are only 2 Jian of Marquis Yi available now – both are in great condition, and once they are sold – its all over.. Plus the bargains available for the scratch and dent Dao sale are in short supply and aren’t quite listed yet. But when they are, they won’t be for long. So keep an eye out!
