Save over $100 on the Hanwei Sword of St Maurice

It;s been on special before, but this has to be the best price EVER on this stunning, fully functional and historically accurate replica of the Sword of St Maurice.

The blade is a classic Oakeshott Type XI with an extra long blade optimized for the cut. These swords were primarily used by the rising Knight class, delivering shearing blows from horseback, and this replica would have been right at home in 12th or 13th century medieval Europe or in the hands of a Templar – for it is also a deeply religious blade, bearing the inscription ‘CHRISTUS VINCIT, CHRISTUS REGNAT, CHRISTUS IMPERAT.’ (Christ Conquers, Christ Reigns, Christ Rules).

At the MSRP of $499 it is reasonable – at our everyday low price of $362.98 it is a bargain. But at the current sale price of just $249.99 until the end of the month, it is an absolute STEAL (or should I say, STEEL!).

Hanwei Albrecht Sword on Special

Over the years, Paul Chen’s Hanwei forge have produced some awesome value for money swords, some average ones and occasionally a flop – but the Albrecht is a true classic and in a league of its own.

In continuous production now for over 15 years, it seems with this replica of a XVIIIa.1 “The Sword of Albrecht II” from Oakeshott’s typology, they got it right the first time..

Here’s a picture of old school SBG member JP Franco with his Albrecht, just to give you an idea of scale.

While very big, it weights a mere 3lbs and is balanced only 4.5″ from the guard – making it exceptionally good for thrusting, but it is no slouch in the cutting department either.

But moreover, it’s really well constructed – in the official review on SBG, Shootermike Harris mentioned:

“the Albrecht probably made 1,000 strikes on the tire pell. One of the things that really impressed me was it’s ability to cut little chunks out of the tire treads.”

When you consider you get all of this for just $289 at the SBG Sword Store – it’s already exceptional value for money.

But from now until the end of the month, you can get it for a ridiculously low price of just $229.99!

Available until the end of October and while stocks last..

Imagine you could get a high quality, well made cutting Katana that won’t cut into your wallet, but sails through standard targets like a knife through butter.

A good, traditional cutting Katana with a real hamon is normally around something like $300 to $500 or so and goes way up from there. But the thing is, in most cases a lot of the money you are paying goes into the appearance of the fittings and the extras.

And that kinda wastes money if all you want is something affordable for the backyard or dojo. Such as the Yanone Katana by Dragon King – normally priced at $400, sold at our store for $300…

With our Special Price Deal on the Dragon King Yanone Katana, you’ll get:

  • A beautifully hand crafted 65mn Spring Steel blade with real hamon, crisp lines and a clean polish. Here is where the money is focused.
  • Unique Silver colored habaki and seppa instead of boring old brass
  • Synthetic rayskin for those concerned about the use of animal products in your sword
  • Great assembly and construction, ready to cut straight out of the box
  • Detailed and ornate solid iron fittings for maximum durability
  • And just everything you need for a good cutting sword without any unnecessary ‘bling’

All for just $229.99!

… Of course, you can let this opportunity pass you buy and spend a lot more money on a sword that many not even perform half as well.

Here’s how it performs, straight out of the box by untrained backyard cutters and members of the CAS Iberia team cutting tough Mugen Dachi Tatami mats with ease:

If you’re ready to get a high quality, well made cutting Katana that won’t cut into your wallet, but sails through standard targets like a knife through butter, you’ll want to take advantage of our special now.

Because , this offer may well run out before the end of the month, when the deal will be withdrawn once and for all.

It’s too good a deal to let this one pass you by..


Sword Specials and a very Special Sword..

From today until the end of the month, whether you are a fan of Western or Eastern blades, Hanwei and Dragon King have you covered – and we pass the steep discounts directly to YOU. How Steep?

YUP, a whopping $100 discount on both swords coming from the official distributor, so as usual, we pass these massive savings on to YOU!

The first sword is truly one of their finest medieval blades to date, the Sword of Saint Maurice – a fine replica of an Oakeshott Type XI.4 with its massive 37″ blade.

While the wood core scabbard is nothing to write home about, the sword itself is in a league of its own, even the fittings are engraved to give it the most authentic style possible – the engraving reading ‘CHRISTUS VINCIT, CHRISTUS REINAT, CHRISTUS INPERAT.’ (Christ Conquers, Christ Rules, Christ Emperor).

It’s a long blade, and a lot of work goes into forging and tempering it – so the normal MSRP on this one is $500. As usual, we offer you our manufacturer direct discount bringing the price down to just $362.98 – but until the end of the month you can save $100 and pick it up for an insane $262.98!!

For those of you who prefer Katana, what could be more appropriate than the tough Summer Lotus by Dragon King.

Designed with durability in mind, this monotempered 5160 spring steel blade is anything but run of the mill in both appearance and strength. While the iron sukashi tsuba and the black ito and sageo are pretty common, it is rare to see SILVER habaki, notched seppa and a unique army green, textured saya to minimize the appearance of scratches.

MSRP on this sword is $449 – we normally sell it with a $110 discount. But until the end of the month save another $100 and you can get it for the insane price of $229.99!

But the last one, well – it’s not technically on special – though it’s so rare we could charge the MSRP and it would still be sold out in a couple of days. Hanwei’s Most Popular Katana Sword to date..

YES, the reproduction of the sword from the Samurai Assassin Cult Classic Lone Wolf and Cub – the Dragon King Ogami Itto Katana.

Do we really need to say more? Normally the MSRP is $1,200 but despite there being so few available with such high demand, we still offer them to you at the best deal around for just $799.99. But you need to be ULTRA FAST or you will definitely miss out on this one.

Just in time for Fathers Day

As we alluded to in the previous post, we have a LOT of new cool items about to hit the shelves at the SBG Sword Store. Here’s MY favorite (and its a great deal too, buy the big one, get the small one free!)..

Yes, it is the WORLDS LARGEST Wrench/Folding Knife Combination by one of Sam Sung, the owner of Ryujin Swords, Companies – S-TEC. I mean seriously, for $142 every Dad deserves one of these in his man cave (and it also comes with a smaller EDC version here for just $30 if you buy it by itself or FREE with every order of its big brother).

With that beast out of my system, here’s another by S-TEC, the most basic carbon steel chopper around with a price tag to match it ($19.99)

And then they offer what is perhaps my favorite type of knife next to a Tanto – the South East Asian Karambit with quick draw system (patent pending) for just – $24.99!

But if you like this basic entry level Karambit and want to get serious, another one of Sam’s companies – DEFCON – has you covered with the RAPTOR Karambit, available in Black or Bronze Finish.

EVERYTHING about these two blades screams premium quality – from the tempered CPM S35-VN w/ Silicon Nitride Coating blade to the milled
6AL4V Milled Titanium + Forged Carbon handles and smooth as silk cage bearing reinforced lock bar at $246.95 it’s worth every penny, and even better at our special price of just $185.95.

But we haven’t finished with our latest knifes just quite yet – for there is one more brand from Sam that spans the middle ground between S-TEC and DEFCON called Proelia.

My personal favorite, this little hard to classify D2 tool steel folder called the TX927 for $34.99 (which incidentally is a great price for properly tempered D2). But I have a soft spot for their interpretation of a Tactical folding Tanto, again D2 tool steel and again a bargain at $74.95.

That about catches us up with the knife expansion (well, we also quietly added a classic – the Hanwei Practical Plus Tanto for $194 here). After all, it was easy enough to list as we added not one but three new Hanwei Forge swords to the store – all Classics in their own right.

The first two are swords that are almost universally acclaimed by the community as worth every penny and then some, but are so rarely in stock in some cases nearly a decade has passed since they were last made available. But here they are, fresh stock straight off the boat of two swords that if you DON’T know about them, you owe it to yourself to have a look..

First up, the Banshee – an evolved, tactical version based on the Burmese Daab and a pattern typically found throughout what was once called ‘Indochina’ (Siam, Kampuchea, Burma, Laos, etc). But it’s really well made, incredibly good fun, and a steal at just $189.99.

But if you want to go beyond a steal and get a HEISTS worth of value, try this on for size – the Dark Sentinel!

Mixing elements of the Swiss Saber with the Japanese Katana, it is a solid performing cutting blade that tends to last for years and years without barely a scratch. And no, the $124.99 is NOT a typo..

And then one of Hanwei’s latest products, a special re-release of the Classic Tiger Katana designed by Paul Chen

Truly a sword we can strongly recommend – from the imported Japanese cotton ito to the brass leaf inlaid saya and absolutely stunning Swedish Powder Steel blade with real hada and hamon.. A tad expensive at its full price of $1650, but right on the money for $999.99 – you get your money’s worth and then some..

Well, hope you found something of interest for Dad this year.

PLEASE NOTE: While we will do our best to ship as fast as possible, orders placed now are NOT guaranteed to make it in time for fathers day. The sooner you get your order in, the better..
