This Day Has Been Approaching..and an Update
An update!! I am still some US $4200.00 in a "hole" thanks to the orders that were not picked up..along with the passage of time so the "Bonkers Sale" is still going on...So if anything strikes your fancy..by all means let me know..Which leads us into this:
It was destined to happen sooner or later..I was puttering around my studio and came across two more Japanese series blades that are 90% finished..and well..these are Gen III blades and the numbers in the series are..get ready for it..No 1 and No 2...It just worked out this way... Now.. I will be putting these two pieces up in the next 24 to 36 hours..HOWEVER..due to the numbers being so low in my series of 125....these will NOT be on the "Bonkers" price structure..however they WILL be offered for a very fair price given their value as far as the series goes... So when they are posted I will update these notices.. These two are GORGEOUS blades...which you will see once they are up and one of them is in a very RARE blade geometry..so take a look.. ( They are "matching" and would make a great Dai-Sho...just a suggestion..).
I will also be posting a few more pieces of Pattern Welded blades this weekend now that I am feeling better (It was a rough time but I am a "human cockroach"..I don't die easily ..While the NVA and the VC...the Iraqi's and the Afghani's couldn't kill me..the VA is trying to)...So I am pretty much back up and running (on a limited basis but that will improve) expect to see some stuff up on the website and orders out the door to all of you fine folks that have been so understanding. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated...
So watch for the update...

Update and a Unusual Piece Added!!!
I wish to thank those that have purchased pieces during my "Bonkers Sale" I really appreciate it and well I am still a bit over $3000.00 in a "hole" but I can see a way out if a few more pieces sell so please take a look at what we have ready to go..which brings us to this:
The reason why I am in such a predicament is simple..I have had several high end orders that were not picked up as the individuals that placed the orders simply "walked away" and left me "hanging".. The first of which is now listed as "Item No 1: A Meteoric Iron Shortsword".. This is a totally CUSTOM and a true "One of a Kind" piece that I will say this about: I truly doubt that there is another blade like this ANYWHERE in the world ... So take a look..it is GORGEOUS! . (Now there are several others that will be listed as they pass their "deadline dates" for pick up .. So keep an eye out for these if you want to get a great deal...)
So take a look and if anything strikes your fancy.. or if you would like additional photos..please contact me. I am more than happy to answer questions about anything on this site..
Thank you for the interest!!

Update and Something Interesting
OK I have sold a piece and I am still in "The Hole" for 3500 $$ US.. however I am confident that we will make our goal...and be able to continue..WITH YOUR HELP.. So I am asking you all to forward the fact that we here at Salamander Armoury are having a MAJOR sale of the Japanese inspired/cutting/working blades..Every little bit helps.. Which leads me into this:
As some of you know I am offering classes..however I need another "forging station" and that will cost some serious lucre..so I have put this out:
By funding this I will be able to get the facilities I need to run decent classes and help to pass on what I have learned in all the years I have been swinging a hammer to the next generation that is "coming up".. in order to keep this ancient art alive!!... So please SPREAD THE WORD!!! Any and all help on this is greatly appreciated...
The BONKERS sale is still running..so now is the time to act if you see anything that piques your interest...
As always, if you have any questions..please..feel free to ask..

Update and Emergency Bonkers Sale!
I have placed the last Japanese style blades up that I have finished on my In Stock pages, now these are IT for the next good bit..well in to 2015 at least for the Japanese style of blades. These are up and ready to go.
Now, due to circumstances beyond my control with folks not picking up their completed custom orders, coupled with my recent down time due to some medical stuff..I am IN A REAL HOLE. I am extending the BONKERS SALE on every Japanese blade I have and not doing it piece-meal.. It seems that I need to raise ASAP some $4500.00 US..Prices have been cut and I mean CUT.. some as much as 50%, all are heavily reduced. Painful for me I know but dire times call for dire solutions...This is the dire solution.. Here is a great chance to get a hand forged, quality blade for a steal of a price, you get a screaming mee-mee of a deal and I can stay working and making swords. Yes it is at this point. So take a look see and if anything interests you, by all means feel free to contact me.
In the mean time I will be finishing up some Euro pieces now that I am able to get back to work, as well as placing the canceled orders up if they are not paid for by their respective deadlines...
So see what we have and as always, if you have any questions I am but an e-mail or a phone call away.
