It has been a while since my last update and things here have been hectic. As the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire is coming up to its closing weekend I still have a few pieces down there. So please stop by Rocky's, Bill's Mike's and I booth and take a look.
Note: I have finally restored the photo albums and I am now starting to populate the pages with photos of my past work, so keep an eye on them if you would like to see some of the pieces we have done in the past.
A word on the Japanese series. It is pretty much over and done with. I still have 8 or so blades that need finished..I will eventually do so..but I may just hybrid-ize them as I did with these two tanto blades:
These are available currently at RPFS in Irwindale, CA.
So take a look at the In Stock pages in about 2 weeks to see new items that I have as RPFS will be over then.
It seems that the Little Chinese Man's "Blessing that I have an interesting life" has hit once again and my truck needs transmission work. I lowered the price on the remaining Japanese series sword that I currently have in stock. Please check it out. This is an excellent chance at getting a very NICE sword at a steal of a price.
Anyway, that's all that's new around here.
Thank you all for your time

Jim has LOST it!! is up
I know that these were supposed to be posted yesterday but due to computer problems I was unable to do so until this morning. There are three Jim has lost its sale items that are up currently, and these are items number 77, The Generation I Kogarasu Maru Katana, item number 103, The Generation II O-Katana, and item number 111, the San Mai Tanto. These items will remain on sale until 1200Hrs Pacific Standard Time on Monday, March 4, 2013, at which time they will be removed and some other times will be placed on sale.
Also I'll be putting up the railroad spike knives as well as the throwing axes and a couple of new, interesting pieces in the next two days one of which is a knife made from a timing chain off of my 1977 Ford F350 1 ton pickup which I've made as an experiment.
So take a look at what's on sale in drop by from time to time to see what's new. Thank you for your time and interest in our work.

Update and the Return of the Jim Has Lost It Sale
Just an update...Things here are finally returning to normal and well, I am just sick and tired of the Japanese stuff laying around here so I am going to list a couple of pieces at a time for 3 days in a modified Jim Has Lost It sale with deep discounts on pieces...
This will start on Feb 27 at 12 noon PST.... So take a look at the in stock pages...
Also the return of the throwing axes and RR spike knives will be posted in the next couple of days as well. A lot of you have been writing in about them and now that I have updated my site security I am more comfortable in posting items.
Pieces will be posted as they are finished.
Take care and thank you!!
New Year's Day Madness Sale!
The first few pieces are up...more will be coming as I am having to re-take all the photos of the pieces thanks to the idiot hackers. These should be all up by this evening sooooo take a look.
I will also be placing updates on what has been added as I go along within this update so keep an eye. These prices are good until Friday the 4th of Jan 12 noon Pacific time.
Update No. 1: just put up several pieces that are now ready to go..so please take a look...back to posting...(Note I did find out why my site is being hacked..more on this at a later time..) Expect more pieces up shortly
Update No. 2: put up a couple more pieces, including my "Jimahagane" O-Katana and a Tanto made from high alloy tool steel (F-8) that actually has a HAMON..talk about a PITA..and this little bugger is SHARP to boot...more updates and pieces are being posted...
Update No.3: A few more pieces were added a moment to go...so take a look see..remember this is first come..first served and this is pretty much "the end of an Era" as far as Japanese blades go...so get them while you can.... More as things progress...
Update No 4: I put up a few more pieces in the Japanese section (my New Year's MADNESS) as well as re-constructed the Axe and Rail Road Spike sections that the GD Hackers destroyed..nothing is posted there Yet but there will be....however....I am calling it a night..
Now if any of the pieces I just posted entice you, by ALL MEANS drop me an e-mail cause these are pretty much it for the Japanese pieces..I have been putting this "warning" pretty much "out there" for a while now so this is it..Last call and all that..I still have a few Tanto to finish but that will be during this sale and they will be posted during its run..
Now due to the fact that it has taken me so $^&&!ing long to work passed the damage that the idiot hackers had done I am extending this sale 1 more day...to Noon (Pacific time) on January 5th 2013,,, Now...even though I am extending the sale by 1 day..it is still first come, first served..so remember that..If there is any piece on sale that you wish to purchase, you should act on that ASAP cause once these are gone..THAT'S IT! No more Japanese inspired pieces will be done for a while (and like I said before that means YEARS and YEARS,,,,) So if anything piques your interest, please feel free to contact me.. As always, if you would like additional photos, by all means let me know and I will send them forthwith.
