Indeed, to be precise - a date has been set for the opening of batch 19 click on the custom Katana page to see the countdown!
In the meantime I have been updating the SBG custom Katana pages (as it kind of grew 'organically' over the years, it had become a bit confusing) and hopefully making some things a bit clearer, as well as providing all the various links (like to this very blog and the FAQ) all in one spot. Was actually quite interesting as I found some bad links and some information I had forgotten I had even put on there (as a webmaster, THAT is definitely a sign that an update is in order if ever there is one! Lol).
Batch 18 - the one sent to the forge on the 25th of November is going out to my agent this week, and as promised here are a few pics from the forge of some random blades! :-)
Quite a bit of prep work from now, plus batch 18 incoming and I don't know how many emails to get to (I prefer to deal with SBG custom enquiries shortly before a new batch opens as I want to provide the most up to date information) so if you are waiting on an email from me, please bear with me just a bit longer.
