Just an update..In the next 24 to 36 hours I will be posting one of my Japanese blade prototypes..This is a very nice Gen II Uno-Kobe Shobu Zukuri sword...I am currently waiting for the last two coats of hard lac to fully outgas and cure..Once that happens, it will posted. Believe me this is a gorgeous sword...  So keep checking back if you are interested..

Thank you for the interest..



Hello!!  Just a heads up...sometime on Weds...6/18 19 I will be posting a Tachi that I finished a while back. This is a very interesting sword with a fantastic..and 100% TRUE story that goes alone with it... Here is a teaser pic...

This is a a beautiful sword and will be posted as I said on Weds.. So keep an eye out!!! I will do another update when it is up..



Thanks to all who in the last 24 hours stepped up and cleaned me out of my in stock items!! THANK YOU!!  All I have left are the axes and spears so I have got to get things rolling....This gives me a small amount of "breathing room" but I am still about $2200.00 short...then I have to finagle a way to get a couple of pieces of equipment moved here from Nevada..

So..I do have a question...does anyone know of a reputable trucking/freight company that runs from Southern Nevada down to the Tampa Florida area? I need to move my Little Giant power hammer ( roughly 1100# on one pallet) and my fly press...(about the same  around 1100# on one pallet...) so if anyone has any names or referrals, please let me know...As I said before I was a bit over on the weight of the truck and I have to ship these down here.

All in all...I will be setting up and I should be up and running  in about 10 to 14  days albeit on a limited basis since I don't have my heavy equipment down here as yet but I can still do runs on high carbon knives, swords and daggers..I even have some pieces of PW steel I made before my moved just in case something like this happened...So check back and see what is happening here....  And..as new pieces are finished..I will be posting them..

The break in and the loss of all those raw materials really hurt us financially, and couple that with the tools that were also taken..it is a good chunk of cash that walked out the door.. Damn thieves.. 

If I could just unstall my go fund me page...that should do it... just in case you all need to know the address....here it is... 


Please spread this around to anyone you may feel would be interested in helping out and old hammer head who is in a bit of a bind. I appreciate all the help that we have received..it it amazing..that is all I can say as I am just..well speechless... But a bit more help is needed so..thank you all for helping to spread the word..

I will be posting more updates as things progress...expect another update around the 4th... In closing...

THANK YOU ALL once again..



I am back from Nevada with most of my equipment..My heavier machines..Ie, my power hammer and fly press I will have to truck down here via commercial freight...The majority of the other tools and equipment are here and I am in the process of setting up..

However..during the time that the equipment was stored..I lost a good bit thanks to thieves.. Mostly materials but also some tooling such as my bench mill..roll away tool boxes (full of wrenches and sockets and the like...) as well as a few other things like my most of my bronze/copper and German silver  barstock..stuff a scrapper could make use of..this hit hurts but all I can do is regroup and KBO..

Which leads us to this.. I need cash..to the tune of $2500.00 and I am yet again lowering my prices.. I have a handful of pieces left and I need to move these as soon as I can so if you are interested..please contact me...If I can not come up with these funds I am pretty much sunk. These funds will hold me over until I can get the first run of new items done and ready to deliver.. If these funds do not come in...I will probably have to close my doors...

My go fund me page is still active so please spread it around...I can really use the help..


Anything will help...so if a piece that I have left interests you...by all means feel free to contact me..

More as things progress...

Thank you for your time..




An up-date....

The benches are more or less in and ready..have a bit more staining and sealing to do..then it is shelves and tool racks..

I will be doing as much as I can these next few days to get ready for the equipment..

As far as the equipment... I am going this week to  retrieve it from our old place in Nevada. It will be a Banzai!! Run.. Flying out and driving it back. I am NOT looking forward to the trip but I AM looking forward to getting back to work. This idle time has taken a major toll on my psyche . It will be great to get back out there!

I leave Wednesday , June 12th and I will hopefully be back here by the 20th. I hope it is a boring trip. One does not want excitement on a trip like this...

Which brings us to the sale. I am going to extend this sale until I return...  This will be in effect until Jun 25th... I am also further reducing prices due to the fact that I will need some additional lucre to help fund the move and set up time...so take a look at the new prices.. I would like to completely sell out as this way I can start totally "fresh and new" here in Nevada...

Now I will be on the road for most of the remaining time of the sale..I will be able to read my e-mail but it may take me a wee bit to get back to you as we will be driving but I will check my mail as often as I can.. Now in the event that there are two or more folks interested in a given piece I will have to go with the first one who wrote in. If that falls through hen the second one..etc.. This is he best way to do this that I can see... So..

On the funding front. My go fund me page has stalled. So if you all could be so kind as to spread the page around..It would be a great help as the more folks that know the better chances are that we reach the goal so I can get everything settled.. here it is:


All in all..things are plugging along as the funds come in..I would like to sell a few more pieces just as a buffer so I can concentrate on getting back up and running..So if any of the remaining pieces strike your fancy..by all means call..I will even entertain legit offers..

So..Until next time..

THANK YOU for your interest and support..
