Our new website is up and live It has been up for about a month. I am quite happy with it. It is far from complete. In-fact I hope to never be finished with it. I am going to try to add new pictures and videos weekly.

We added
-Product videos and some "how to" videos of us working. ( step by step videos coming soon)
-New product galleries (product description page with prices coming soon)
-New antique galleries (as we find old picture we will add more and take new pics of what we have now)

I think the site is much easier to navigate and we have a ton more pictures up. I have a long way to go until I am 100% happy with it, but it is on its way.

The next page that I am working on now is a custom sword gallery. Not many people get to see our forged blades and damascus work.

Check it out www.BaltimoreKnife.com

Feed back is welcome. I am sure you will all want to see a better layout for purchase and some details on the swords. That is all in the works so hang in there with us.

Hey there, good to see you over here. The website is looking really good. Holly liked it alot better than the previous one. The one thing I would change would be to put some more specifics of the swords up, stats and such. Look forward to seeing you at the pirate show here in St. Pete.

Nice site.

It's not that I would trade my lot
For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

I added a page for the wedding sword that we made for Mike Aldredge. I will end up making a page like this for most of our products.

Very Very cool dudes, congratulations! The picture of the armoured guys with flaming sword is like right out of Borman's Excalibur. The photography is real sharp and photoshopped clean. Easy to navigate, it is hard to see the buttons at bottom but I got used to it. You guys rock!

My work is about fifteen minutes from you (Columbia). I'll have to stop by your shop sometime.

Drop me a line Jonathan. We welcome people to stop by and see how it's all made.

I have added a few more things to the products page. I also added a few more videos. A few products videos and some making vids.

We just added a tutorial section to our website. Look for that section to get a lot of use in the near future.

Re feedback, suggest give customers a hint to browse the tiny buttons from right to left, which works much better. Also, probably at most 3 lines of buttons per page. On the large swords page if I find something I like & click look at it, hard to remember / find where I had got to.

Or instead, if simpler, larger photo-browse buttons. Some of us are getting old :-)

Thanks for the feedback. I am working on the photo galleries now. I am re-working the categories and while I am at it I will make larger thumbnail buttons. Those two things should make it a lot easier to navigate.

The categoies will be broken down by type.

ie: Cutlasses, broadswords, rapiers, knives/daggers, customs

Like that. We actually have 1000's of pictures that are not on the net anywhere so this may take some time to finish, but I will start one at a time so I can get some feedback along the way.

You guys ought to do something with Charm City Cakes, http://www.charmcitycakes.com/ . I am sure Duff would be up to something sword like and the exposure for you would be great.
