Ok, just a very quick update - I'm actually waiting on some pictures from the forge of batch 18 - but in the meantime, since we are a bit overdue for an update, this quick blog update will have to suffice.
Batch 18 is running a couple of weeks behind schedule as suspected due to the Chinese New Years celebration that lasted the better chunk of January, but the forge promised 100% completion by the 21st of March at the worst.
Naturally I am waiting until the swords are completed and shipped out from the forge to my agent in Canada before opening up on new orders for batch 19. So in the meantime I will be contacting everyone who has asked a question about the custom swords as we usually prefer to answer such questions as close as possible to when we start to take new orders again to ensure we provide the most up to date information (because as anyone who has been following the SBG custom Katana over the years will know that we do add new options and improvements every few batches).
Anyway, just wanted to let you all know where we are up to - stay tuned, not long to go if you are waiting for your sword to come in or waiting to place your order.
