Coming Soon – the Bakemonogatana

I started development on this blade around 6 months ago or so from memory, and it has gone through a few different configurations to arrive at the final design – a unique Katana styled Fantasy sword based loosely on the Bujinkan Shinobigatana with Filipino sword design principles, so while it is a fantasy piece, it is also a versatile and practical sword in its own right.

In our fantasy universe, it is a sword crafted by Hobgoblins who hail originally from the Harmonious Isles, which is loosely based on medieval Japan, though unlike medieval Japan has to contend with an inhuman invasion of Hobgoblins who have held nearly half of the available land mass and continue to wage and endless war against humanity.

You can read the full backstory in the bestiary for Hobgoblins here – and the preliminary page for the sword itself here.

These will actually go on sale this month, as they are already made and at the SBG Black Dragon warehouse in Canada waiting final measurements and some professional photos before we can list them as available. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of one of the landed swords.

Love it or hate it, it is certainly unique – and lends itself to some interesting techniques based on the deadly effectiveness of Bujinkan and Filipino blade fighting styles.
