The following pieces are all hand forged and hand crafted from only the finest materials and we are constantly looking for new and interesting materials to use. Inventory will change on a regular basis as pieces are sold and new ones are finished, so please check back.

Methods of payment we accept are "Bank Cheques/drafts", Cashier's Cheques, Money Orders, VISA/Mastercard and Google Pay. PayPal is no longer an option due to the fact that I manufacture and sell "Dangerous and illegal weapons" which violates PayPal policies..and so..we no longer accept PayPal as a payment option.  So, please contact us for payment procedures. I try to be as easy as possible on this..

We are also interested in possible trades for pre-WWII Smith and Wesson and Colt revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, Walther, Mauser and Luger pistols as well as legally registered select fire weapons will also be considered. Other collector firearms may also be considered in trade, as we are FFL holders and have been for over 45 years

We ship via FedEx Ground as our standard method, so a street address (no P.O. Boxes) is required where someone will be present to sign for the package. International orders are shipped via USPS and all customs fees  and import duties are the purchaser's responsibility.

It is also the purchaser's responsibility to follow all laws pertaining to the purchase, use and possession of any of our products. These items are not intended for sale where prohibited by law.

A word on the Japanese style blades.. I am pretty much done with the research for my 4th book, the working title: "The Hand Crafted Blade: Tools and Techniques for Craftsmen". Once I finish up the few pieces I have left I will no longer be making any Japanese inspired blades. So if you see one you like, you best get it. There will be 125 pieces total. This is not many at all when you consider I have made thousands of blades over the years. Once these are done, they are done.. No more will be made...

The Japanese blades will be marked "Hage Bokatsu", along with my chop on one side on the tang and then signed with my signature on the other.

We have also added two new sections, the "Weird and Wonderful", these are items that usually do not fit into what I usually make, and my "What the Hell was I Thinking" section where all the other even weirder stuff will be... so be sure to take a look. 

So with all this now done...


So...what we currently have in stock is:



These knives are forged from "HC" grade RR spikes and are PROPERLY heat treated to get a decent cutting edge. No two are exactly alike..they are shaped the way they come off of the anvil.  I admit that I make these a bit differently than most other makers out there. I forge these to NOT feel "dead in the hand" or to be "butt heavy" and cumbersome. These are fully hand forged and distally tapered and PROPERLY heat treated. (For more information on how these are made..please go to my article pages..I have a article explaining how I forge these out. )  These are very tough knives indeed as well as being unique! 

PLEASE: Be aware that these little guys are EXTREMELY SHARP !! These knives WANT to cut!!

<<PLEASE NOTE: The blades below do NOT come with a sheath..)

The blades we have in stock currently are:



Blades are hand forged from HC marked RR spikes. This material is vey similar to 1045 which has a minimal amount of carbon just barely enough t harden somewhat, however we have develouped a thermal treatment that allows us to get a decent edge on these. 

No 1: SOLD!!

No 2: $65.00 In Stock

No 3: $65.00 In Stock

These throwing axes are hand forged from soft iron/mild steel for the eye/poll with a medium carbon steel (either 1060/70 or 5160..) edge inserts. All are slow browned and ready to go.

We use the "standard tomahawk" handle that is available from most re-enactment suppliers. However due to the hand forging some minor fitting of the handle may be required but this only takes a few minutes. All handles are hand rubbed with  an oil finish and are very comfortable in the hand. I sell a whole lot of these and they just "work like they are supposed to".. These are simply just great axes...

NOTE: I am at the end of my series. I have 2 numbers left to fill and to be honest I am in no hurry to fill them due to "burn out" on doing so many. They will be filled but I will work on them every so often. So keep a look out and see..Once these are gone that is it for the series.

These swords are hand forged using only the finest steel and iron. all are hand made. The Samegawa is imported so are the other materials I use like the Tsuka-Ito, Kashirae and other parts . These are gorgeous swords. They are EXTREMELY SHARP and proper care must be taken when handling these blades.


 NOTE:  There are no numbers remaining. However, I am currently finishing up several more prototype/example pieces for book IV. I will be posting these as they are available.. I will be posting an update on my main page when they are near completion and again once they are complete and listed. So please check back often.. THANK YOU  ~~~JPH~~~

Please Note: I say again: The numbered series is now completed and there are no more pieces available in this series.; However, I still have a few book IV pieces that I am making for the Japanese Blade sections of that book. These will be available for sale as they are finished and photographed and they will be signed as book IV pieces on the nakago. 

These pieces will include Katana, Chisa Katana, Wakizashi,  Tanto and a few Naginata  ( the nagi's will be available as blades only!) so please check back to see what was added. THANK YOU ALL for the support of this  series. I greatly appreciate it!!

Items in Stock: 

 These are amongst the LAST of the Japanese blades that I will be making. There will be NO MORE after these unless I need  a piece for book IV. I have pretty much completed that section in my 4th book so...I do have to make a few smaller blades ..wakizashi mostly for illustration purposes for book IV and when those are done they will be posted here for sale.

After many, many years of requests from people of various faiths  we have decided to "go public" with the fact that we have been making hand forged ritual blades for over 40 years. These are the same high quality as all the other blades we make, these are just made a bit differently in accordance to either Lunar or Solar cycles  as requested by various faiths.  

We understand the differences between the different paths, traditions and sects..all due to the fact that Jim is  Mazdayasna (aka Zarathushtran..aka Zoroastrian) clergy, a follower of the teachings of the prophet Zarathushtra also known as Zoroaster in the modern world... 


In Stock Pieces: 

These pieces are what we currently have in stock ready for immediate sale: Prices are given upon request as these are priced differently from our other blades, as most that follow these faiths will   understand


Currently working on several pieces that will ab available for immediate sale.
