~Suzaku Forge~ Custom Bladesmiths

Symbol of the martial spirit (Budo) of old Japan is the warrior's principal weapon, his sword. There are two traditional tests of a fine blade: first, it should be able to cut a common blade in two without its edge being nicked; second, if it is held in running water with the edge up stream and a lotus is allowed to float against it the stem should be cut in twain. ALL of our blades will pass these test or the blade is yours at no cost.

EVERY blade we make is made custom we do not sell pre-made swords, you make an order and we build it for you according to your specifications...
