It's a mad house around here - with Christmas just around the corner there are shipments flying every which way, the stragglers from batch 20 of the SBG custom Katana going out - you name it, it's happening!
But to top it all off, we had a couple of Hanwei sales recently - most notably the Hanwei Practical Ninjato that ended up selling out within 24 hours..! (actually, the Ninjas got to them! I'm not kidding, someone else snapped them up from the warehouse and will probably sell them at a much higher price - we had to reverse 5 orders within a day due to this sadly)..
Anyway, with Christmas FAST approaching - and because sword deliveries are not instantaneous - if you haven't already now is definitely the time to get any sword orders that you want by Christmas in. Usually we don't advertise Christmas sales because our store is not amazon.com - we are a small business, not a corporate giant shipping machine.
But this year, especially on the Hanwei's, we thought "why not" as their warehouse is almost hands down the most effecient in the industry - so when two more deals came along on two extremely cool swords, we jumped on them.
And I suggest if you find them of interest you do the same, especially on that stunning Iga Ninjato in the hot specials section because I would not be surprised if they are snatched up again super fast..
For other products in our store, it's probably getting a bit too late to order anything else other than a Cheness sword. Here is there official 'when to order by' schedule:
orders, Hawaii, Alaska, PR - Orders needs to be placed by
Friday November 30th
PO Boxes in the continental US
- Orders needs to be placed by Friday December 14th
US (Eastern, Central) - Orders needs to be placed by Midnight Monday,
Continental US (West Coast) - Orders
needs to be placed by Midnight Thursday, December 20th.
Personally, I feel it's leaving it a bit close - as we get closer to Christmas packages fly every which way but where they are supposed to, and delays are to be expected. So if there is something you want, seriously, now is the time to get it..
Once the Hanwei sale is over we will be bowing out of the Christmas madness and concentrating on making sure that any existing Christmas orders make it there in time.
But yes, in the meantime - if you are in need of a sword for Christmas, don't wait another second..
