Prior 2001 SkyJiro was only making limited number of customed japanese swords in Queensland, Australia. SkyJiro Forge's International Brand was first founded in 2001, and our New Forge was established at same time too! SkyJiro went to China in 2001 and bought a well respected family owned forge, the only family forge has been making Japanese swords with the tradition for five generations, and more importantly with the master smith’s passion and soul. All of SkyJiro's masterpieces embody these very important ingredients. For the past 11 years he has developed his skills as a professional swordmaker and built a highly respected professional worldwide swordmaking company.
In 2007 空次郎 (SkyJiro N.) teamed up with 金山 Kinzan (David Goldberg) a professional Japanese trained swordsmith, to fortify the Japanese swordsmithing tradition and add critical integrity to the metallurgy, design and workmanship of the sword lines. David started his swordsmithing career in 1987. He has been trained in Soshu tradition under the Kanefusa lineage in Gifu Japan. The partnership now has come to a place where they are offering the highest quality swords on the market for the price point. Each and every SkyJiro-Line sword carries a limited lifetime guarantee. We have gathered several of the highest grade traditional japanese trained smiths in Asia to work with us in our studios, all with more than 10 years of experience. We have trained, and continued to educate our in house smiths in the fine detailed techniques of Japanese swordsmithing tradition. We continue to develop and refine our swords. Our swords are evolving all the time. We adhere to the classic traditions of Japanese master smith techniques. This is what David brings to the table. Throughout history the blades geometry, or in another words the "Make" of the blade is the most important component feature of a given blade besides the "Metallurgy", "Hardening Techniques & "Polish Techniques". Our blades have the "Classical Geometry", "Weight to Curve Ratio", and "Taper of the Finest Blades in Japanese Sword History".
