Ok, lot's going on at the moment - so it's definitely time for a quick post to let you all know where we are up to..
First off, a few hours ago the much anticipated Cheness Cutlery restock has come in and perennial favorites like the Tenchi, Oniyuri and Yamakami Katana are again available to order after being out of stock for around 4-5 months.. No need to panic though, it's a large shipment and there should be enough stock to last until the next replenishment. But anyway, if you are one of the many people who have been emailing me asking about when they will come back in stock - well, they are here!
Within the next few days, we will also be offering a VERY small number of swords from the SBG custom Katana forge that were made with a minor error by the forge (i.e. wrong ito color, etc - purely cosmetic). There aren't many, and they will be priced to sell - so be sure to check back for those in the next few days as it's a rare opportunity to get your hands on one of our incredibly popular differentially hardened T10 tool steel blades. Here is an example of one of the blades we have on offer - a Kogarasu with Hamidashi tsuba and kanji engraving ..
For medieval sword lovers, we have a strictly limited opportunity to get one of Valiant Armouries stunning Signature series blades - either the Savoy Bastard Sword, Hedemark Viking or the single handed Bristol sword. Due to an inability to keep up with demand and rising costs, a price increase of 10% has come into effect on this range - however for anyone who reads this blog you can get them at the original price until the end of the month with the coupon code:
(Please note that this offer is ONLY available to people who use the coupon code in the checkout - we operate on very low margins as is, and Valiant have already increased their wholesale price so this special offer squeezes us VERY hard. As such, it is strictly available to people who use it at the time of ordering - it cannot be applied retroactively)...
OK - so that's about all for this update. There is actually quite a bit going on right now at the store, with more releases and news coming shortly, so stay tuned - more updates coming soon!
