Just an update.  In the next 24 to 48 hours I will be posting two more book IV Japanese sword prototypes. Both are Gen II and both are drip dead gorgeous!

Here is a sneak peek at one...

Once he lacquer dries on the second one I will post both for sale and as usual...I will make another announcement when they are up and available! So check back.

Take care all and thank you for your interest.



Hello!!  Just a update...in the next 24 to 36 hours I will be posting another one of my book IV prototypes. This is an earlier blade in my book IV work but it is still very, very nice. Will be posting here when it is up,, So check back and see.. 

THANK YOU for your time and interest..


UPDATE!! New sword!!  

I am finishing up one of the last three numbers in my limited edition Japanese sword series.. This is a gorgeous sword with quite a but of hira sura on the blade above the Hamon..I am doing the tsukamaki now and if the lacquer finally dries today I will be listing it tonight on my Japanese blade page.. I will be doing another posting when the sword is listed as a heads up.  

So stop by again and see...  THANK YOU all for your interest and support. Without you fine folks I would not be able to keep a dying art alive...

THANK YOU for stopping by..




To all of you who wrote in and sent their condolences and support after our recent loss..  We wish to say THANK YOU for your understanding and support. Things are still a mess and we are working our way slowly through everything but there is still a small mountain of things that need to be addressed...However we are making some headway..as slow as it is it is still progress..

Update: We are back at it..granted for a limited amount of time each day but I am back to work  as much as I can while dealing with this  (the aftermath is  still taking a sizable amount of time) yet I am getting some items done so keep looking as see what is new.

Which brings us to this: I just posted two more pieces..one a pattern welded dagger and the other  a  Gen II Dai-sho  (I have two numbers left in my series after this set)

This set is listed in my Japanese Style Blade Section and is ready to go..  So take a look..It is a gorgeous set..

So stay tuned for new items as they are finished and once again.. THANK YOU to all for your understanding and support...




This was supposed to be an announcement about several new pieces being posted....This is not the case..I will do that another day.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to convey that my brother Robert has passed away on Wednesday evening here in Spring Hill..he passed quietly after a long illness.  Things here are a bit shaken up and I have been very busy trying to tend to him and the tasks at hand. To those waiting for their pieces to be shipped.please know that they will be shipped as soon as I can..Hopefully this coming Monday, as I should have the arrangements made for what needs to be done by then.


RKH 1971-2020... Go in piece dear brother..you are now out of pain and tribulations.. We always will be grateful for the time we did have with you...
