Tigersden on Blogger has an official blog :


New posts will be added at the rate of about one per week, and will cover everything from new designs, to workshop notes, to antiques........and just about everything else in between that relates to Mu Dao Jian.


It is now nearly December, and production is speeding uo to try and get as many orders out as possible before the end of the year. Next year, I plan to start using precious woods for making jian and dao. At the moment, I am still researching and sourcing Chinese woods, and I shall be talking more about that on the blog in due course!
