It has been quite a few years since we have had any stock of the Black Dragon Forge, the name we have given to swords made by the forge we use to create the legendary SBG Custom Katana series.
So it is with great pleasure that I announce a limited supply of new and improved designs are now available for immediate shipping.
This time around we have four models on offer – a new and improved version of the Classic Black Dragon elite, with folded T10 tool steel blade, real hamon, rayskin wrapped saya, leather ito with hishigami – you name it, it has it..
This sword alone is worth the price of admission, and is complimented by its cousin, a Sanmai laminated sword with a similar classic style but with a rattan reinforced saya.
The one we have the least stock of is a classic redesign of the Yakuza inspired Oyabun Shirasaya – perfect as it is, or a great way to get hold of one of the SBG T10 Black Dragon blades for a remounting project – for these blades are some of the finest around – strong, sharp, well tempered, beautiful and with real geometic yokote and highly polished kissaki normally only ever seen on swords with a four figure price tag – never mind a tad over $300…
And finally, a truly original design and part of the Legendary Swords Project – the Hobgoblin Jintachi we have named the Bakemonogatana.
While the sword is functional sword art, it is based on real world designs seen in Filipino fighting swords, the Turkish Kijili and the Bujinkan Shibobigatana and is extremely versatile and has a rich backstory to accompany it as the weapon crafted and used by the brutal Hogoblins – changelings from the Harmonious Isles that have come to Eletreus and dominated the worlds last known supply of Coronatite..
You can read the full backstory on this sword here at our sister site, Legendary Swords.com
Stocks are very limited – 10pcs each of the Elite Mk II and the Sanmai Katana, 4 of the Oyabun and 20 Hobgoblins. And once sold, who knows when they will be restocked (from memory, it has been at least 3 years). So at the very least have a look and see what’s on offer before they are gone. They make ideal Christmas gifts as they are new and rare, there is no danger of buying one of these and finding the recipient already has one..!
More deals coming soon as we ramp up for Christmas sales so be sure to check back often!
