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.
seth: yeah trying to plan summer camping trips now--I can't wait

RufusScorpius: Mmm, campfire, fresh fish, some 'taters gathered from the woods... paradise....

Brother Nathaniel: Don't camp too close to the forbidden forest! A word of advice brother.

christain: If I were still in my teen years, I'd be camped by a fire on the edge of my pond with lines in the water...hoping to catch breakfast. If not, then go foraging the woods for nuts and berries. Not the easiest, but you'll live.

christain: A campfire and a good bottle of Scotch sounds pretty on-time right now. But only if I have a waterproof tent. The weather here is as unpredictable as a new wife. Watch out for the forest Elves and Gnomes.

Brother Nathaniel: My old friend! Well... you will always be welcome for a spot at my campfire. I am preparing to brave the forest again for some more research.

christain: Hey, Rufus! Sorry I haven't been on in a while to chat. Just too busy with the holidays and suffering a few medical setbacks. It really bites getting old, but I can still perform. My wife may have a different opinion, but I'm referring to swordplay.

RufusScorpius: Oh, yes. "Real life" I played that game once. Outstanding graphics, but horrible game play.

nerdthenord: Howdy scorp. Just been kinda busy with real life.

RufusScorpius: Hey there Christain, Nord! Long time no see...

christain: What's up, LG! Have any new goodies to show us?
Jan 16, 2021 1:04:00 GMT
christain: What she doesn't know is that I have a little nest-egg in a secret bank account. (SSSHHHH!)

christain: I hope this year shapes up better than the last. Living on mine and the wife's Social Security checks can be a stretch sometimes. We eat lots of Ramen noodle soup.

Ouroboros: Brother Knight, whats up in the world?

treeslicer: Welcome back, Christain!!

nerdthenord: Hey Sir Knight! Long time it's been!
Jan 15, 2021 5:54:49 GMT
christain: What I want and what I get are two different things though.
Jan 15, 2021 2:55:12 GMT
christain: Happy belated New Years everyone. This year will find me making some cool new purchases, including a Medieval-style crossbow. Maybe a dagger or two, some sick armor pieces, and a new sword.
