Happy New Year!

And a 5% discount coupon code..

You can almost feel the whole world breath a sigh of collective relief that 2020 is finally over (or at least, in almost every part of the world it’s behind us)..

Unfortunately, just because the year changed does not mean all the issues that plagued 2020 have magically disappeared. Santa put on a heroic battle, but even he could not prevail..

But at least we hope to see some victories against the pandemic and the havoc it has wreaked upon our modern way of life. Vaccines are coming and new and intelligent strategies are being developed, many of which may be of benefit to us all.

But in the meantime, while we are officially closed – a deal to make up for all the expected shipping delays and the fact that we are basically taking some much needed time off.. (mostly, though I find it hard as there are a LOT of new projects being prepared for launch this year)..

To use the coupon, simply enter the items you want to purchase from our store to your cart.

Once you are happy, simply checkout and in the following field enter the coupon code exactly as written.

(or just click the button below to automatically add the discount).

CONDITIONS: Please note that this coupon code is ONLY valid if used at the time of purchase. If you forget to add it, please do not ask for refunds as refusal may often offend.. During this time shipping and email support WILL be slow, hence the discount. Offer may be withdrawn at any time ahead of the stores re-opening.

P.S. The swords above are ‘decorative wallhangers’ through and through, but the photography was stunning and the designs in themselves have some nice points. The fish tail pommel, wire wrapped sword in particular would not be bad if it had a strong, matching guard and real blade.


Officially closed, but working harder than ever!

While we may have officially closed off on the 20th of December, there are still too many emails that need answered, deliveries that need to be double checked and fixed and a ton of things needed before I can begin to partially unplug for Christmas day..

Santa’s Elves are proving no use as usual..

And so it’s up to me to give the year one last push to try and get across the Christmas finish line. And to do so, while at this stage we normally bow, out – this time we are offering two last minute ‘Christmas Savers’*

Both are from RYUJIN SWORDS and feature the classic differentially tool steel blades they are famous for. But the savings are out of this world..

First up – the KUROKENSAI (Black Sword Saint) which has a solid bodied blade, solid Iron Muashi tsuba and all black fittings.

And the next one is the last few of a final closeout sale from the Ryuin pre-assembled series. While the KuroKensai is all black, the Yukizuna is it’s polar opposite – with all WHITE fittings.

Now because Christmas is only days away, international orders are out of the question. And unless you live very close to California, then it’s a risk to ship using standard ground shipping. So we have added an option for 2 night express for an additional $35. (No longer optional)

We cannot guarantee that it will make it in time, but this is your best shot – and the prices, too good to ignore..

P.S. Did you see the 10% discount on the entire Kingdom of Arms Series? There is less than 24 hours to go..

Check out their line up here

My favorite from their series so far – probably their Sword of Strider

Or the Gladius, Falcata and range of Knightly Swords from the Crusading orders of the Teutonic Knights and the Templars..

Well, time to continue my ‘holiday’ – about 100 odd emails to get through so will work through the night and see how we look tomorrow!

P.S. In an edit I noticed that in the coupon the sale expired on the 23rd of September 2020..! I meant December of course, shows how much I need a REAL break..

Two new HOT SPECIALS in time for Christmas

When it comes to buying swords online for Christmas, it’s really important to get your orders in as soon as possible.

We explain the whys and wherefores of this tactic in some detail over on this article on the main site ‘Christmas Sword Buying Guide 2020’

In a nutshell, you really don’t want an item that could be damaged by excessively rough handling that tends to increase the risk of your order being smashed to pieces every day we get closer to ‘the big day’ – but also, you want to allow time for any possible exchanges and returns – and trying to order at the last second is a tried and tested recipe for disaster..

NOW is the time to get your Christmas shopping sorted – and so here are two awesome new specials that should suit almost every collector.

The first is a simple and very practical Katana by Dragon King, the Warfire Katana

With a hard wearing differentially hardened 65MN steel blade, it is differentially hardened in the traditional manner to create an edge with HRC of 60 and a spine of 40, pretty much the ideal for a traditional Katana.

The iron fittings depict ancient Japanese battles, the silver menuki, a riderless horse, the black iron tsuba – Kumamoto castle in flames on one side and a proud mounted Samurai on the other. The saya is complete with buffalo horn inserts, and all in all, it is a very well made sword at a extremely reasonable price..

However, with this special – it’s a total bargain – the MSRP on this one is $499, our everyday low price just $359.98 But from now until the 20th of December you can get it for only $274.99!!

The second sword on special for December is a super tough steel sparring sword by Kingston Arms – and one of their most popular and cool looking designs, the blunt tourney hand and a half Knightly sword.

Based on a 14th/15th century Oakeshott Type XVIIIa.4, it is a classic example of a Knightly Longsword and using 9260 Spring Steel and their patented ‘King Peen’ system, creates one of the most solid steel beaters around..

Price wise, it is a true bargain at the MSRP of $259, and a great deal at our everyday low price of $189.98.. But until the 20th, you can grab it for a mere $144.99!!

10% Discount on EVERYTHING – Black Friday/Cyber Monday Mega Sale Now On!

At the SBG Sword Store, we don’t usually use coupons or other ‘gimmicky’ things. Instead we believe in offering EVERYONE the best prices possible all the time.

But every now and again, we are willing to risk making little to no money to dig deep and offer you the very best discount we can muster – across the board and applicable to EVERY product in the store.

So here it is:

To take advantage of this limited opportunity to save big – simply enter the coupon code BLACK10 (no spaces, upper case ‘BLACK’) or click here to automatically apply the discount to your cart once you have decided on what it is you would like to order.
