Legendary Swords Final Closeout Sale

They arrived at perhaps the worst time possible (boxing day 2021) and have been listed during one of the most difficult times in recent sword history. But after 6 months of holding them in stock the time has come to liquidate this project of ours once and for all..

Our misfortune is Your Opportunity!

While it is bad news for us, and the final death knell for the Legendary Swords Project (so much so that we have actually removed all reference to the original backstories for these swords) it is great news for fans of original, premium quality hand made bespoke fantasy swords..

Normally Fantasy swords are either stainless steel decorative things or $3000-$8000 one of a kind artworks – and the Legendary Swords Project was our (failed) attempt to bridge the middle ground, so the chances of seeing swords like these at anything similar to the current closeout prices is practically non-existent.

All the swords below are 100% fully functional, made from 5160 spring steel and with premium custom made original fittings and each one is based on a real world sword of some kind or another. So without any further ado, let’s take a look at the last three swords from this series for the very last time:

THE CASTIR

A ‘Fantasy Katanaesque design’ the 2.54lb Castir is lighting fast and was described by Martial Artist Joko Setiawan, who after using it “like a Katana, a Machete, and an oversized Cavalry Sabre, transitioning between forms, stances and using both edges in mock attacks without skipping a beat, had this to say:

“If I’m in a battlefield, I want this thing on my side. This is better than a Katana.”

Previous Price: $799.99

FINAL CLOSEOUT SPECIAL PRICE: $599.99

THE AELUTIAN GLADIUS

With it’s distinctive spear/arrow like head, this wide bladed Fantasy Gladius is the only sword I know of that is capable of bisceting a water filled bottle with a thrust! Great fun, and visually striking with its matching custom hand made scabbard.

Previous Price: $629.99

FINAL CLOSEOUT SPECIAL PRICE: $499.99

THE BRAND OF THE FALLEN

If you like your swords big, bad and slightly terrifying – the Brand of the Fallen is for YOU! Based on a hybrid design between a German Zweihänder and Flamberge (flame bladed sword), the blade terminates with a deadly undulating, serpentine Kris blade design that causes unpleasant vibrations to an opponents weapon when it makes contact and delivers distinctive tearing, shearing cuts when it makes contact with the target. Truly intimidating on every level and an absolute bargain at the final closeout price.

Previous Price: $899.99

FINAL CLOSEOUT SPECIAL PRICE: $549.99

As all swords are being sold BELOW COST this is most definitely the last time you will see these designs on the market. So grab yourself a piece of SBG history before these swords are gone forever..

Sengetsu Katana Special Offer

One of the latest additions to our line up of entry level Katana from Ryujin Swords has just become one of the best deals of 2022 – the Sengetsu Katana series.

Ticking every box in a very old school way – the fullered (bo-hi) blades are made from differentially hardened 1095 carbon steel blades, a modern steel that comes very close to the same carbon content as traditional Japanese Nihonto. The fittings are solid brass with tightly wrapped black cotton ito over genuine rayskin – but the best part, the price: now just $199.99!

With prices going up across the board it is rare that we are able to secure a LOWER price – so if you are in the market for a solid entry level cutting Katana, this deal should be at the top of your wishlist..!

ONE STYLE – THREE COLOR CHOICES

Red Ito Sengetsu Katana $199.99

Blue Ito Sengetsu – $199.99

Black Ito Sengetsu – $199.99

Forge Direct Wakizashi Back on the Table!

It has been nearly 3 years since we were able to last offer the acclaimed Forge Direct Custom Wakizashi/Ko Katana to compliment the matching Forge Direct Custom Katana – with supply chain issues coming to a head for us in June 2020 and taking 2 years and 10 months to retool and get us back into the game..

But back we are – so without any further ado, some great news for lovers of the shorter Japanese styled blades and fans of premium quality custom Daisho Sets (the two swords that were the badge of honor and representative the station of the Samurai, the Katana and the Wakizashi).

FORGE DIRECT CUSTOM WAKIZASHI/KO KATANA

The only caveat we would add is that there are some delays still associated with Forge Direct Optional Extras – Premium Matching Tsuba and Fitting Sets which are one of the few components the forge does not make in house and with quite a few different available options, can be hard to predict which ones are readily available and how long they might take to produce. But as a general rule of thumb, ordering without this option will likely see your order come in slightly earlier than the 6-8 weeks stated and ordering with could add up to an additional 8 weeks..

So only choose this option if it is a must have addition and you aren’t too concerned about delays and lead time.

Otherwise, time to start designing your own Custom Wakizashi or two handed grip Ko Katana!

Introducing: the Grey Wolf Katana

As this month draws to a close we are delighted to introduce several brand new additions to the ever expanding line up of Katana from our friends at Ryujin Swords – starting with one of the best balanced and fastest Katana they have made to date, the Grey Wolf Katana:

With the type of differentially hardened T10 tool steel blade that forms the backbone of Ryujin’s best sword offerings – the Greywolf is no exception. Weighing only 2lbs with a point of a balance just 4.25″ from the tsuba it is the fastest and lightest sword they have made to date, and features a solid iron wolf themed tsuba with matching black colored brass fuchigashira.

And even though price rises continue to ravage the industry, we are squeezing our margins as hard as we can one last time to offer it at the introductory special price of just $249.99

But that’s not all!

FOUR ADDITIONAL NEW MODELS!

Not one but FOUR new swords to the line up – the first a differentially hardened 65mn Spring Steel Katana with enhanced hamon and solid brass tsunami themed fittings called the ‘Choji Tsunami’ Katana:

Quite a bargain at just $199.99

And then 3 new swords to the fully functional but highly ornate line known as the ‘Art Sword’ line. First up, the Dramatic ‘Akazamurai’ a bright crimson themed sword with monotempered 65mn spring steel blade with a truly unique blade color and pattern:

Pretty awesome looking – but even better is the price. Just $149.99!

Then there is the Ninjato from the future – another 65mn Spring Steel blade, but unlike most Ninjato/Ninto is Katana rather than Wakizashi length. Introducing the ShiShi Ninto Art Sword:

And again, it is a bargain at just $149.99

And finally, something TRULY unique and priced to be a very hot seller as the year warms up – the differentialy hardened T10 Tool Steel Katana the Golden Bamboo..

Notice anything different about the blade?

Take a closer look at the gorgeous golden anodized hamon highlighting the real hamon that lies beneath for the most dramatic hamon temper line to date!

This is one sword that is sure to flash in the sunlight – and at just $179.99 goes to show you that even in these trying times, Ryujin and SBG are still doing their very best to bring you the best deals humanly possible:

If you are a fan of affordable and attractive Japanese style swords, I am certain you will find something of interest. Check out the full Ryujin Line up below:
