It has been several years since we have seen a new Project X Katana blade – so it is with great pride we announce one of the most attractive looking traditional Katana blades ever produced outside of Japan, the Project X Next Generation Elite T10 Choji Hi Polish Custom Katana!
Leveraging the already proven Forge Direct and Project X Soshu Kitae Custom Katana furniture sets and customization options, this Master Smith forged blade is polished to near perfection by Master Polishers using Japanese fingerstones to make the clear natural hamon line POP like never before, and shows just how refined a T10 tool steel DH blade can be when no expense is spared.
Just take a closer look at how defined and clear the nioi of the blade can become, with prominent ashi..
With this sword added to the line up of Custom Katana we have available at SBG, there are now FOUR distinct levels or Tiers of Custom Katana blades available, from entry level Ryujin builds at Tier I (whose blades and fittings are made at the same forge, but shipped as parts to the USA and assembled to order) to Forge Direct at Tier III, which are built entirely at the forge and shipped worldwide from Longquan, and now two models of Project X at Tier IV – the new Choji blades which refine the T10 blade to its highest possible level, and the complex laminated 1095/1060/1045 blades of the original Soshu Kitae Project X Custom Katana.
This new blade also announces the end of the current sale on Forge Direct and Project X. However as we have taken all the data from the sale to arrive at the fairest and most sustainable price points for the entire project, the new sale prices are ALMOST unchanged – the Forge Direct Custom Katana only goes up from the sale price of $629.99 to an even $700 with almost all other prices remaining where they are for as long as we can sustain current sale levels – which is good news for everyone!
And speaking of good news, as we are now only days away from the official start of the Lunar New Year of the Dragon in 2024, we release a luxurious Forge Direct Limited Edition design, the Forge Direct LIMITED EDITION Elite T10 “Kuryuken” Dragon Katana!
This T10 Choji Hamon Forge Direct Master Smith blade is complimented with a suite of Dragon themed fittings, from the 24K gold plated Dragon tsuba to the elite Mother of Pearl inlaid Dragon saya to an exclusive and highly detailed premium Dragon horimono engraving (which at $100 on one side, is normally not something we offer on the custom Katana series) complimented with upgraded Black leather ito with hishigami.
If you add it all up, the total cost of this build would normally be $924.50, but is available at the same price as the base custom Katana for just $700 shipped – and with only 10pcs ever to be made, is definitely a unique and attractive offer for lovers of Dragon themed blades..
Pretty exciting stuff – check out the current full line ups for current pricing and models available:
