Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed the New Year celebrations and here's to a happy and healthy year in 2012!
Quite a bit going on at the moment (and lots more in store for 2012!) but a couple of immediately newsworthy things..
RONIN KATANA 1045 LINE
Firstly, you may have noticed a brand new line has been added to the SBG Sword Store - the Ronin Katana Dojo Line
While the Dojo Pro series uses 1060 carbon steel blades, the Dojo line is a 'budget' version that uses 1045 - but unlike most other 1045 carbon steel swords these 'Dotanuki' style blades are thick and extremely well tempered, resulting in a blade that could easily be mistaken for 1060 (indeed, a dishonest seller could easily pass them off as such and only a handful of experts would be able to tell the difference!).
Anyway, there are 5 designs in this series - 2 traditional ones, and 3 somewhat 'anime' themed swords including 2 with Shinobi/Ninja themed fittings as shown below:
Ronin "Miyamoto" Dojo Katana
Ronin "Okinawa" Dojo Katana
Ronin "O-Suzumebachi" Dojo Katana
Ronin "Black Shinobi" Dojo Katana
Ronin "Red Shibobi" Dojo Katana
All of these designs are available at a super low price of just US$174.99 with FREE shipping in the USA and come with a 7 day inspection period. As far as value for money goes, it honestly doesn't get much better than this and I am proud to be able to exclsively offer you these designs.
CHENESS CUTLERY WAREHOUSE HOLIDAY
In other sword store news, the Cheness warehouse will be closing down for a company holiday for three weeks over the Lunar New Year holiday period, so the last chance to get an order in and shipped is really either by today or Thursday at the absolute latest, with all orders coming im after this time shipping after the 1st of February. So if you want to get a Cheness sword before the warehouse closes, NOW is definitely the time to do so..!
That's it for now, though stay tuned - there is a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment and 2012 will see several long term SBG projects that we have been planning come to fruition!
Talk to you all again soon.
