Legendary Swords Project Cancellation: Final Closeout Sale

Perhaps the concept was doomed from the start and my own excitement and enthusiasm got the better of me. But our attempt to fill the void for actually functional, battle ready fantasy swords has not been anywhere near as successful as it needed to be to continue the project.

The final straw has been extremely poor sales of the BCI sword shipment that just landed March 30th – despite being able to bring them in at incredibly low prices for such lovingly hand crafted sword art..

Now with the budget for this project well and truly blown out – the Legendary Swords Project has had no choice but to disengage from its goal of creating the worlds best value for money truly battle ready fantasy swords – but our failure is YOUR chance to grab a serious bargain and get some rare collectible swords that we will never be able to offer again..

Here they are, the best closeout deals of 2019..

Starting with the BCI shipment that just landed..

We managed to bring them in at the lowest target price possible, but despite heavy promotion and our best efforts to get the word out about the quality and value for money of these swords, sales were not forthcoming..

So now we clear them all out with a huge $100 discount on each sword, giving you WHOLESALE pricing so that we can at least try to recover the funds tied up in these premium quality hand made swords (I honestly still can’t believe that people did not snap these up when they were first released)..

Here are the BCI stocked swords on final closeout:

The Vorpal Sword – was $579.99 – NOW $479.99
The Castir – was $599.99 – NOW $499.99
Sword of Danu – was $499.99 – NOW $399.99

But there is more…

In addition to the final closeout sale of the BCI Swords, Master Smith Michael Ye is also winding up his part of the project – but before they disappear for good, one final hurrah at insanely low prices.

Here they are for the last time:

Adept Enegry Swords – 4 styles – was $479.99 NOW $379.99
Sky Templar Sword – was $699.99 – NOW $329,99
Sky Templar Gladius – was $699.99 – NOW $329.99
The Sky Dragon – was $1,399.99 – NOW $599.99
The Sword of Peace – was $999.99 – NOW $499.99
Dragons Tongue – was $549.99 – NOW $299.99

The closeout ends May 5th 2019, marking the end of an era.

Many lessons were learned during this project, and the Legendary Swords website will eventually find a new direction. But for now, grab a piece of ‘history’ before it all fades into the mists of time..


Blade Culture International Shipment Just In!

This one has been 9+ months in the making – and 2 years in the planning..

And we are absolutely delighted to be able to offer the first round of SBG member designed swords for the Legendary Swords Project (plus a restock of the awesome Tactical Ginunting Sword), all priced as low as possible and offering tremendous value for money.

Here’s a quick pic of one of each sword from the shipment

From Left to Right, Tactical Ginunting ($349.99), Sword of Danu ($499.99)., The Castir ($599.99) and the Vorpal Sword ($579.99)
Blades slightly drawn from the scabbards. Just gorgeous…

Lovingly hand crafted in the Philippines by their best forge, these really are something special.

As stock is VERY limited, if you see a sword in the lineup you like, best grab it while you can – they take so long to make that the earliest restock of these models is unlikely to be any earlier than December 2019, so don’t miss out.


European Sword Shipping Ban..

I was hoping to have a much more positive blog post for you today – but that is going to have to wait as our sword collecting brothers and sisters in Europe have just been given punch in the guts by the E.U.

It’s not out of the blue – but it is rather sudden, and it appears that ALL standard sword shipping methods to Europe have been suddenly taken away and all shipments in transit to E.U. countries are hitting a wall and bouncing back to sender (a huge waste of money and a hit to ALL sellers of swords, as now an average shipping cost of $60 per sword is down the drain).

There is no announcement that we are aware of, and as swords ARE legal in the E.U., this is really an attack on civil liberties, personal responsibility and freedom that so many European countries hold so dear..

I have started a thread to discuss this and provide updates and news as it comes to hand here on the SBG Sword Forum. But for now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but due to this situation we have had to remove ALL European countries as valid shipping destinations for our store as we have no economical method left to ship by..

For any customers with swords in transit that are being effected by the ban, we will endeavor to receive any swords that are returned and refund you as soon as possible..

New Limited Edition Forge Direct Jian – the SeaDragon

If you have ever wondered what exactly to expect in a high end Chinese Master Smith made sword but never had the funds to be able to justify buying one, this may be your golden (or as the case may be, brass) opportunity.

Working closely with Rank 1 Master Smith, Michael Ye, this new sword is a true limited edition release – once this special offer finishes on the 20th April 2019- it will be archived and no longer available to purchase.

But what makes this deal so special, other than the sword itself, is the price – normally if it was to join the existing Forge Direct line up, the price would be $1000 – but while it is available it is being sold at the highest discount level ever on any Forge Direct Sword – a whopping 40% discount..!

Now it is possible for nearly anyone who is serious to take their collecting to the next level – but at midnight on the 20th of April, this deal turns into a pumpkin and both the deal and the sword will no longer be available to purchase.

Check it out HERE and see what you think – in the meantime, here’s a high resolution image giving you the closest look possible short of having it in your hands..

Stunning Octogonal cross section, 1095 folded steel blade with beautiful hand cast and hand finished brass fittings.

Two Closeouts from the Legendary Swords line..

I guess it is the nature of a fantasy swords that some designs just don’t work out like they should.. But still, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent early retirement of not one but two designs from the Legendary Swords Series..

Rather than repeat myself word for word, you can read about what happened and why here at the Legendary Swords blog – but to make a long story short, we simply are not in a position to sit on stock of slow moving items – and so have no choice but to forgo any possible profits and just try to recover the funds tied up in these sword designs..

It is a real shame, but also a great chance for bargain hunters to take advantage and grab a unique design that will never be seen again..

Hopefully the 3 BCI designed and made Legendary Swords that are due to land this week and be available next week will go better. The Legendary Swords site actually costs about 5 times as much to run as SBG and we are heavily investing in webcomics and cool software programs for it – all coming directly from our own pockets as almost every attempt to fund it as failed..

We tried..
