These knives are forged from "HC" grade RR spikes and are PROPERLY heat treated to get a decent cutting edge. No two are exactly alike..they are shaped the way they come off of the anvil.  I admit that I make these a bit differently than most other makers out there. I forge these to NOT feel "dead in the hand" or to be "butt heavy" and cumbersome. These are fully hand forged and distally tapered and PROPERLY heat treated. (For more information on how these are made..please go to my article pages..I have a article explaining how I forge these out. )  These are very tough knives indeed as well as being unique! 

PLEASE: Be aware that these little guys are EXTREMELY SHARP !! These knives WANT to cut!!

<<PLEASE NOTE: The blades below do NOT come with a sheath..)

The blades we have in stock currently are:

 

We are currently sold out of these however I am making another run and these will be finished shortly.

 

These throwing axes are hand forged from soft iron/mild steel for the eye/poll with a medium carbon steel (either 1060/70 or 5160..) edge inserts. All are slow browned and ready to go.

We use the "standard tomahawk" handle that is available from most re-enactment suppliers. However due to the hand forging some minor fitting of the handle may be required but this only takes a few minutes. All handles are hand rubbed with  an oil finish and are very comfortable in the hand. I sell a whole lot of these and they just "work like they are supposed to".. These are simply just great axes...

NOTE: I am at the end of my series. I have 4 numbers left to fill and to be honest I am in no hurry to fill them due to "burn out" on doing so many. They will be filled but I will work on them every so often. So keep a look out and see..Once these are gone that is it for the series.

These swords are hand forged using only the finest steel and iron. all are hand made. The Samegawa is imported so are the other materials I use like the Tsuka-Ito, Kashirae and other parts . These are gorgeous swords. They are EXTREMELY SHARP and proper care must be taken when handling these blades.


The current stock we have in the series is as follows.:

I have 3  numbers left to fill in this series as of now. I will eventually fill these and the series will be complete... I have no idea as to when this will happen..probably sometime the next year and a half, maybe a bit later,....may be a bit sooner.  It all depends upon what is needed to complete the Japanese blade section of my fourth book.. All I can say is keep watching this section. As soon as I get these done...i will post them for sale. I do have some prototypes that I did for book IV that I will be posting once I get the final photos taken for book IV.

So keep checking in...

~~~JPH~~~

Update: I need to finish the last pieces as I need these for book IV...and I am doing so as time permits  so... what we have in stock currently are:

 Hamon Prototype:  Togari-Gunome .

This is a GORGEOUS sword. This one is a Gen II blade, 1070 carbon steel around a softer iron core in the Kobuse method of blade construction. The blade is Shinogi-Zukuri and has a blade length of 28". this sword has a great feel to it and is very responsive and solid in the hand . This is a prototype for my 4th book. A very impressive sword both  visually and handling wise. This is one of the nicest blades I have ever made in the Japanese style.

 

The Hamon is fantastic! Very active and very wild. This has all sorts of things going on and it is very .. VERY   sharp. This blade would greatly benefit from a more professional polish than I can do..but still the activity and the hamon are superb in their present state of polish.

 

The Tsuka is black samegawa under black and gold chevron pattern silk tsuka-ito. and is secured with two (2) bamboo mekugi. The tsuka length is 10 1/2"

The Tsuba, fuchi, kashira and menuki are all done in bronze with gold leaf detailing in a temple lion motif. Very attractive indeed.

 

 

I have to say this again.this sword is simply beautiful... simple as that...

The siya is wood with black horn fittings and finished in black lac with what I call gold rain drop finish. It is sealed with 6 coats of hard, clear lacquer. A very nice siya for a very nice sword.

 

With an overall length of 39 1/4" this sword is ready to go! Visually impressive it gives a very dramatic feeling when viewed or held.  This is one of the Japanese blades I made as a prototype for different Hamons for book IV..and it is marked as such on the nakago. A one of a kind sword that is for certain.
