This years seminar was a wonderful event. Many thanks to Enomoto Sadahito for coming and sharing his wealth of knowledge and to all the attendees for making it possible. It's been a very busy few months here and continues to be so. In the next few weeks I will be updating the site with a large review of the seminar as well as adding a page for my apprentice, Josiah's work. He's been doing some very cool stuff with fittings and continues to refine his smithing skills. I've been quite busy myself working on my backlog but have managed to forge up a few upcoming pieces that will be very special. One in particular is the first No-dachi I will have made in over a decade, it is meant to symbolize the compilation and refinement of all my skills to this point in my life and is traditionally made from tamahagane.
Just thought I would make a quick announcement. I am now offering blades from my mentor Enomoto Sadahito. I will occasionally have blades availble from other Japanese smiths as well. All available blades are professionally polished in Japan and come in shirasaya or full koshirae. We're doing this in an effort to promote his work and hopefully heighten the study of traditional blades as well as modern Western made blades.
Once an order has been placed there are no refunds! Changes to standing orders can be made at my discretion.
