An update...Jim is still on restrictions for the next two weeks.....no heavy lifting, no excessive bending....no power tools...so he is more or less left  with hand work like polishing, filing and the like..This gives him a chance to finish up some of the Japanese blades he did for book IV.  In the next 48 hours  we will be posting three Katana..

One will be in black under grey with ghost theme fittings and  a Choji Hamon....The second one will be green with gold accents under black with dragonfly mounts and  our 3 Brothers Hamon and the third, red under black lacquer, with Phoenix fittings and our "Double Cross" Hamon. 

As soon as they are done we will be posting the notice here.

Thank you all for your continued interest and support...


Just posted two new katanas to my Japanese section..one is in "fighting mounts" and the other is in more elaborate mountings.. Both are very VERY SHARP!! so take a look before they are gone.


These won't last long so take a look and if you are interested in acquiring one of these by all means drop us a e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Jim is slowly healing and is still under light duty for the next two weeks or so.. No heavy lifting, no excessive bending, no heavy machinery usage  but he is allowed to do hand work, which he does have quite a lot to do. 

We will be posting two (2) Japanese blades for sale in our Japanese section sometime tomorrow Feb 21 2024, One is in combat mounts and the other is a drop dead gorgeous sword. So please check back and take a look. We will be posting here when they are up,

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts...

Thank you once again..

Update for Saturday, 10 Feb 2023:


Jim is home and recovering from emergency surgery to correct the blockage that was causing all the infections. He was going into kidney failure and toxic shock but the drs caught it before any real damage was done.

He is home and under light duty restrictions. this mean no heavy lifting over 20 pouns..no excessive bending ..etc. So he will be doing alot of hand work and grinding as well as working on book IV.

However since he been out of work for close to 5 months, our coffers are bare. we are placing lower prices on the two remaining pieces to help us out of this dire situation until Jim can finish up some already forged pieces as well as get some back orders finally out so if you could help us out and acquire one of the last two..that will be a great help.

He will be finishing up another book katana as all that remains there is the final hand polish and hilting. This will be listed when iot is done late next week or so.

It's been rough but he is feeling much better. Now if he listens to the Drs..that is another thig. But he is home and back to work on  a limited basis.



Update: New sword Posted.

We just posted a new Katana under out Japanese blade section. This sword was done for book IV to illustrate what happens when the clay pulls away from the blade during heat treating. This is a true one of a kind sword. Please take a look. It you are interested in purchasing this sword, it will be a great help to us.
