A Final Holiday Gift Note from Bugei Trading Company

As we close in on the final days of the holiday season before everyone tucks the kids up in bed and waits for the fun to begin, we have just put up something very special on our site: A new Howard Clark 1086 custom katana in Full Polish in Shirasaya!

The polish is by Keith Larman of Summerchild Polishing. Keith helps Bugei with technical issues on our Exclusive Japanese Sword line. Keith has also helped design new swords for Bugei including the Liondog Daisho and a new upcoming "Peace" motif sword (details will be shared as soon as we have them in stock). Keith Larman has been closed to new commissions for a while as he has an extensive backlog of work, so a newly finished piece available for immediate purchase is a rare thing indeed. Usually he only has a few pieces for sale at any one time and usually only very high-end swords completely finished and mounted.

Keith has also agreed to consider mounting the sword for the buyer (at an additional cost, of course).

Howard Clark is well known for his L6 Bainite swords. However, not as many know that Howard first made his mark on the Japanese sword world with his high performing and stunningly unique 1086 katana. This katana was tougher than most anything else on the market. And the hamon Howard Clark would get on these swords befit his mastersmith status. And this sword is no exception. Where his L6 blades have a sedate, undulating hamon, this sword has a wild, hard to describe hamon with so much to see.

The blade's shape is shinogi zukuri with a chu kissaki. And it is available now, only at Bugei. There is much more information for this sword on the site. And when it is gone, it is gone.

And for you last minute shoppers, we still have a few of our Special Sword Bundles available for immediate shipment. These are "in-stock" swords bundled with some free extras ready to ship immediately. We also have a good supply of t-shirts, incense, very detailed Japanese Arrowheads (yanone), statues and other goodies for your christmas gift giving needs.

 

Best wishes to you all and see you in 2010!
