And Batch 22 is closed!

Ok, it's official - batch 22 is closed and over the next few days my assistant and I will be going over all the orders to make sure everything has been formatted correctly for the forge and double check to make sure there are no data entry errors before sending the final instructions to the forge along with their payment so that they can commence work.

This may take up to a week to process everything, and once we have submitted the designs and the payment to the forge we will send out an email to everyone who is part of this batch (update 1). In the meantime, if you have any last minute tweaks or changes you wish to make, NOW is definitely the time as once we have submitted the instructions to the forge no changes are possible - it will be 100% locked in.

I look forward to bringing these designs to life, there are some really great designs that have been submitted with NO repeats - each design has been unique and I am confident that this will be the very best custom katana batch yet!

I'll update the blog every now and again with pics or information on the forge, but for the most part updates will be made via email to batch 22 customers directly. However if at any stage you have any questions just shoot me an email and I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.

Last Orders..

Hey Everyone,

Nearly last order time - batch 22 will be officially closing on accepting new orders on the 10th of May. Late orders will not have much time to make any adjustments to the order, so please if you aren't sure about your design, best to wait for batch 23 in 3-5 months time.

For customers who already have an order in with batch 22, now is the time to make any last minute adjustments, as once we send the order details to the forge that's it - no further changes are possible as doing so could mess up everyone's orders - so once we lock it, it's locked for the duration.

Looking forward to bringing these great designs to life!

Quick Update

Just a very quick update, batch 22 is shaping up nicely - at this stage we are scheduled to close off on the batch between the 6th and the 10th of May depending on how many more orders come in over the next few days.

But we are winding it up, so if you haven't got your order in yet - now is definitely the time.

I've also updated the information page as I have received quite a few emails asking me about the tsuka length and some other bits of info that were missing there.

Some EXCELLENT designs coming in, really looking forward to closing off and getting the forge to work on them, I am confident that not only will this be the best batch ever - when the swords come in they will be truly quite awe inspiring!

I'll make another update within the next few days, in the meantime any questions just let me know.
