After our production crew's continuous research, testing
and improve the construction method, Realistic
Sparring Weapons' durability has been further increased,
including the following aspects:
Decreased Katana's breakage probability
Capable of building a curved sword over 45 inches long
All tips' durability increase
Decreased the large and heavy swords' breakage
We would like to thank our customers who participated in
the research and development: Mr. Jaam Yan Yau and Mr. Sai Lung Lee. We also
want to express our appreciation to our customers for their continuous
support. Otherwise we would not have the opportunities to undergo such

friend Cooper Moo from Seattle paid us a visit and had fun. Details
response to some swordsmanship practitioners who concentrate on delivering
hard blows in sparring, here we made a video to investigate how hard one has to hit in
order to inflict effective damage in unarmored combat and the difficulty in
crashing through opponent's defense with hard blows.
Belated happy new year! In 2007 there will be a film dedicated to the
historical swordsmanship and the swords of both the east and the west. Its
was produced seriously with the top people in the sword circle interviewed.
We recommend it to everyone!

to an uncontrollable price increase in certain material, we regretfully to
inform that we are left without choice but to raise our price accordingly.
The slim profit margin of our handmade products could not cover the change
in the cost. The new price will be brought into practice next month. For
those customers who would like to purchase our product with the current
price, this is a good time. We are trying hard to locate alternative
sources. We promise that in the future if the material price dropped, we
will adjust our price to reflect that. We apologize for any inconveniences

We imported some new middle sized hockey helmets from
overseas. They can be adjusted to fit large and small sizes barely. They
came in white and black. The characteristics for these helmets are that they
are lightweight with a face mask that does not prohibit breathing. The
protection is all aspect, covering top, left, right, front, back and below.
We only have 4 in stock at this moment, selling at 500 HKD each. This does
not come around often so please make your order before the stock run out.
think you did a pretty good job on these trainers. I handled Patrick's
AT1211, and the trainer you made from the same specs, and they balance
pretty closely considering one is steel and the other is a padded trainer. I
think your padded trainers are the best on the market.
"Next to Gus
was Patrick Jones, who was selling RSW's (Realistic Sparring Weapons). These
training swords have a metal-reinforced plastic core, a foam layer to absorb
the shock, and a fabric layer to hold it all together. One of them handled
very similar to Gus's AT1211, and I believe was actually based off of it. I
know a few people who use them for sparring and like them but I had never
handled them before."
design of carrying bag so that it is
lighter and handier than the 3rd version. With 9 improvements including but
not limiting to double straps, double zippers and side opening, it is more
suitable for carrying real swords and airsoft guns.
Due to the
popularity of the longer weapons and the demand of the package sturdiness
have been increasing, we have purchased 100 cardboard boxes with 3 layers
construction that reach the upper limit of postal limitation. As a result,
each box can now house 12 Katana or 7
weight of the box is 2.1 kg / 4lbs 10 oz, we can reduce the box's length
within sturdiness margin for the orders of shorter weapons upon customer's
request, in order to reduce the shipping cost.
Also, here is
a photo of our new workshop. The area beneath of the working table was
filled by those new boxes (and the sleeping room too *sobbing* ).

The move has
literally killed both of Lancelot's computer.
That was why the website was down for 2 days. Now a new computer has been
purchased and the website is running. Due to the installation of various
hardware and software, please expect the website to be unstable for a week.

improvement: Learning from our customers' feedback, we have successfully
improved the guard on our products. From the beginning of this year, all the
guard on our products will be installed with a new method. The material has
also been changed to a virtually unbendable metal. In order to reward the
patience of the customers who have ordered our products during our move, we
will implement these improvements on their order without any extra charge.
In the future,
due to the increased cost of the labor and material involved in implementing
the improvements, the product price will be adjusted accordingly.
The move is virtually completed and the internet connection is restored.
However, the computer that holds the records of order is malfunction though
and is currently sent to be fixed. All data is intact and hopefully the
computer will be returning within the weekend. Then we will start
production. Thanks for the waiting!
Note: As our
new location does not have the same broadband connection as we currently
have, the website will be temporarily moved to a friend's apartment to
ensure the connection speed would not be significantly affected. Email
communication will be made less frequent than before until we can find a
solution for the broadband connection at the new location.
Recently a friend has purchased a batch of affordable steel Katana that are
accurate in the handling characteristic, suitable for solo drills and test
cutting. The Kogarasu-Maru in Enzo's test cutting video was one of them.
These swords are the best entry swords for those who wanted to practice with
real swords, yet having limited financial ability. You may click on the
following picture for more information:
We now offer a
new way to pad the guard with rubber that do not require any tape to cover
it with the low cost of 20HKD / 2.64 USD. It is more attractive in terms of
appearance and more durable than our former foam padding option. The foam
padding option will remain free. You can see the difference below:
We have a
special offer. Due to some miscommunication, a spare Chinese Dao has been made. We are now offering
the sword 100 HKD / 13.19 USD less than its listed price, that is 550 HKD /
79 USD including the bag or 450 HKD / 65.33 USD excluding the bag. You may

Parke, an Iaido practitioner from USA has arrived Hong Kong and would
stay for approximately 6 months. We had dined and sparred last Saturday and
Sunday respectively. Those who are interested in sparring with him may
contact us. On the other hand, John Magee from USA is going to arrive Hong
Kong on 23rd September and we are looking forward to do sparring with him
Some customers wondered why we do not carry all the models from Fred Chen.
Our answer is: We only carry the models we have examined firsthand, approved
for historical accuracy in handling characteristic and tested in test
cutting to ensure quality. So it will take some time before we can put more
models for sale, for we will examine each model and test them before putting
it up on the site.
Boyd, a Haidong Gumdo practitioner from Korea, had visited us today and

For those who
haven't watched our videos before due to the file size, I've made a 1.4mb
promotional video and you may get it here. (the

be more rigid)
claymore has been put to test in a series of sparring. It was also the first
time that storyline and background music were added to the sparring videos.
