Hey everyone, brand new member here and first time, hopefully soon-to-be sword buyer/owner.
I've been doing my research and recently, finally settled on the Ronin Katana Euro #9 Arming Sword as the product I want for my first sword. However, they are out of stock on both Ronin's site and Kult of Athena (probably the only two places I'm willing to order from).
Can anyone say when they last remember seeing this sword in stock? Can anyone offer, beyond pure speculation, any thoughts on when, and IF, they may be back in stock?
I sure hope the product is not discontinued due to lack of sales or anything like that.
I saw a thread from earlier this year where the Ronin representative said he was leaving the forums, which is a bummer because that would have been the perfect, direct source to ask this information of.
If anyone else can offer any information, or reassurances that this model will indeed be back on the market (within a reasonable time frame, like a year or so), I will hold out and wait! If the opposite is true and there's any reliable info that this sword may be discontinued, I'll have to resume my searching for my first sword =(
Thank you! That's awesome to hear they plan on restocking soon. I found the Facebook post you mentioned and it said "next 2 weeks" at the end of October, so even if it's a big longer than that, I'll gladly hold out for the quality:price ration that reviews suggest these offer.
He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one." Luke 22:36
Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.

shotokan: I'm willing to try anything. Don't get me wrong, pool noodles are fine but I am tired of cutting them honestly.

The Levin Lance: All jokes aside, I think you will like the beach mats better than the pool noodles at least.

shotokan: Nice. My hanwei raptor should be here by thursday... planning on slicing some pool noodles for fun.

Ouroboros: Days going well. Getting my table ready for some polishing.

shotokan: I'm not sure but the number of and size of the holes was just mind boggling.

The Levin Lance: Maybe with the shotgun situation it was birdshot?
Jan 24, 2022 18:15:57 GMT
shotokan: Oh yeh, typically if they come with rifle wounds it's from an ak47... we did have a lady come in several years ago with multiple point blank shotgun injuries. Still don't know how she survived.

The Levin Lance: Anything particularly nasty? Rifle rounds and such?
Jan 24, 2022 17:38:48 GMT
shotokan: lol not yet... tons of GSW's but no sword injuries.
Jan 24, 2022 17:35:34 GMT
The Levin Lance: Seen anything close to a sword wound in the ER?

shotokan: Good morning Ouroboros, how goes your day thus far?
