New Today!

Just received the Natural Finish Shirasaya, and the Handforged 'set'. The Shirasaya is as good as described on the site, if not better. It has a 'feel' about it combined with a great balance, it makes a great piece, and displays well. The Handforged 'set' in The Brocade box is not bad either! The on...

SILK (PATTERN) Sword Bags

Evening all!
Being a new collector, I would like to find 3 silk bags of the same pattern for Katana, Wakizashi & Tanto.

I live in Bridgwater, Somerset. :S
