It is with the greatest sadness that we must report the passing of our dearest friend, teacher, owner, operator, and founder of Japanese Swords, Ltd. Benjamin Kreiser, Jr. He passed away on November 25th, 2012, due to ongoing medical complications.

After taking time to evaluate the continuation of Japanese Swords, Ltd., the overwhelming clarity that Ben was and is the heart and soul of this enterprise has lead us to the descide that its legacy should remain with him.

As such, we will no longer be continuing Japanese Swords, Ltd. as a public commericial business.

We would like to thank all of our faithful customers who have continued to support us over these many years. Your patronage and enthusiam never went unnoticed or unappreciated.
