It's been a marathon and my eyes are blurry from looking at the computer monitor (you'd think they'd be square by now - what, adaptive evolution and all... ) - but I have just completed a major overhaul of the SBG Sword Store
For a start, everything has been laid out in a much nicer, more compact format (with HUGE pics and more info on the swords behind the thumbnails). But that's just the cosmetic stuff, because I have also made some arrangements to be able to supply my customers with the latest Hanwei Forge Swords (well, there are many other lines available - but with my rep on the line, I'm taking a slowly, slowly - proven lines only approach).
(I think that rhymed..? Hmm, getting delirious now! Past midnight downunder and I've been going straight for at least 8 hours... heheheheheheheheHAHAHAheuheu - sorry!)
ANYWAY: Yes, the sword store - more products coming soon, and even better, FREE SHIPPING for my friends in USA! ;D (And of course, I'm NOT raising my prices to compensate!!)
Thanks paul, we appreciate all of the effort and time you put into the site and your viewers.
I'd have to say that my only recommendation would be for your to carry some medieval swords as well. As I've states before, katanas and japan in general isn't my thing. If you provided the same aspects of the sbg sword store but included medieval ones as well (gen2 and windlass if at all possible) then you would be king of the market!
By the way, shipping to America must be a serious pain, so another heartfelt thanks for the monetary anguish you must go through mailing these.
Thanks for your feedback guys! To answer a few questions here:
Rammstein - I will have a selection of medieval swords available in mid February, mostly CAS Iberia I think. I'm not going to stock Gen2 simply because, well - I don't want to undercut Trueswordsman as he is a friend of mine! As to shipping to the US, I actually have arrangements in place with several sword manufacturers and vendors for them to drop ship the products within the US for me (its on the shipping page there) - though naturally I am VERY careful about who I choose to do this...
Elchon - No, no plastic parts at all - but its not pattern welded, simply two billets folded around 6-7 times to give it a Damascus appearance. As for cutting, its ok - but its primarily for display as the folded steel is obviously not as predictable as monosteel..
Larry - the blade is sharpened with a functional edge, but the appleseed bevel is not razor sharp. Its primary function is as an attractive display piece, though it it of course still 'functional' - but wouldn't be my first choice as a cutter.
