A quick trip to China

As anyone who read the latest issue of the Sword Buyers Digest will know, this month I am off to oversee Project X with Chris Scoggin from Ronin Katana, and as I will be in a VERY remote part of China (Longquan is very much off the beaten track) I will have zero internet access during this time. As such, from this Wednesday the 19th of September no orders will ship and there will be no responses to emails until I get back on the 29th.

My assistant Karyn will be overseeing recent orders and shipment information while I am away, but no new orders will be processed from the 19th until the 29th (orders can still be placed, but they won’t ship until the first week of October).

Sorry for the inconvenience folks, any questions or concerns please let me know.

Project X Pre-orders closing shortly

Just a very quick post to let everyone who is interested that we are about to close off on accepting pre-orders for project X – likely within the next 24-48 hours. Due to the price and the wait time, this project clearly isn’t for everyone – but for those patient few who know just how much of a revolutionary deal this is – this is the last call before we close off and submit the orders and the payment to the master smiths.

I’ll post again when we close off so talk again very soon.

SBG Custom Katana and Project X

Ok, just a quick follow up to the previous post of the 20th of June.

Things are moving along quite rapidly with batch 19 of the SBG Custom Katana and it is now EXTREMELY close for us to start taking orders on batch 20. Rather than repeat myself here, if you are interested check out the SBG Custom Katana blog here.

The other VERY exciting news concerns Project X – Master Smith forged Katana made under the SBG and Ronin Katana banner. As mentioned in the previous post, the whole story (and it’s a long one) will be posted in the July edition of the Sword Buyers Digest Online Magazine – so if you haven’t already, I strongly recommend you subscribe..

But in the meantime, here’s your chance to sign up to the official Project X notification list!

So stay tuned folks, July is going to be HUGE!

P.S. We have changed the look and feel of both this blog and the SBG Custom Katana blog to better match the store, plus added a ‘window’ to the Store Blog on the news page. Hope you like it!

Talk to you all again soon.
