Looks like an update is WELL overdue - but with some major product releases and a revolutionary and VERY exciting change just about to occur, I will try to compress 9 months worth of updates into a couple of paragraphs and some pics!
Naturally batch 22 was made, the swords came in - and they were, as we expected, quite lovely.
Unfortunately, batch 23 - which was originally scheduled to open in August/September was put on hold in preparation for phase II of a planned, site wide upgrade and expansion - and so naturally people have been wanting to know when WILL the next batch open, especially as batch 22 met and exceeded our expectations, guaranteeing the future of the project for the foreseeable future.
The answer, in another post - this blog is about to get VERY busy...
ABOUT THE "Black Dragon Forge"
Since 2008 SBG, our Canadian Agent and a micro forge in China who specialized in high end and top quality blades have collaborated together to produce the custom katana that we all know and love and who the blog is all about in the first place.
But at a certain point in our history, we decided to get some stock made of a design combination whose basic theme appeared more than once in EVERY batch, the so called Black Dragon design - and the Black Dragon Katana became the first in a series of swords that were later to be known as the SBG designs series.
Here is the Katana in question:
And now, as we are about to release even more designs to this line and need a better brand identity than "those guys who make the custom katana" a proper name was needed, and the Black Dragon Forge was born - and the blog updated with the new look accordingly...
As I hinted at earlier in this post, this blog is about to get BUSY. Indeed, I am sitting on a huge amount of news that I need to get out to you guys but will break it down into more easily digestible posts - so stay tuned, some major and exciting developments and announcements are imminent!!!
