Just another quick update - Batch 20 is well on the way from the forge and we are bracing ourselves for customs.. It's going to be annoying and intensive, but rest assured we always do our best to minimize any delays..
Because now the forge does not have any custom orders that they are doing for us (though they are doing a few priority remakes on some swords and components that we were not happy with from batch 19) batch 21 is scheduled to officially open on the 31st of October..
As mentioned previously, this is going to be a very small and very tight run - and because there is so much going on (plus at the same time I am struggling a bit with a very nasty cold that will probably take 2-3 weeks to get over) I'm not sure if there will be time to answer all SBG custom Katana questions. I'll do my best once we open up, but cannot guarantee anything at this point (sorry guys, I am working 24/7 but there simply are not enough hours in the day at the moment).
Got to go, I'll post again soon.
