  1. We'd like to thank everyone who came buy and visited or purchased from Excalibur Brothers over the Holiday weekend and especially on Cyber Monday. Due to the overwhelming response we have decided to extend our sale until Midnight at Thursday November 29, 2012.

    It's folks like you that give us reason to be thankful for being in business. No matter what your sword or knife needs we hope we have something you will want and love. If it weren't for you we simply would be in business. This means we strive to offer the best service possible and if something isn't right we will make it right. Your satisfaction comes first.

    If you ever have a question, comment or complaint feel free to call me directly on our toll free line 1-877-220-3259 and for Lawrence (I might even be the one answering the phone) and I will be happy to talk with you personally.

    Thank you again for the opportunity to serve you and I look forward to serving you again soon.

    Sincerely,
    Lawrence Piper

  2. Just a reminder that Excalibur Brothers is offering 10% off all orders for Cyber Monday. We also have several extra special deals on the home page where you save not only 10% off our everyday sale price but an additional $10-$25 depending on the item chosen.

    If you or a loved one are a lover of fantasy medieval, samurai or ninja swords now is the time to buy. You'll also find great deals on hunting knives, pocket knives, throwing knives and fantasy knives.

    The sale runs until Midnight tonight November 26, 2012 Eastern Standard Time.

    Hope to see you there.
  3. After the ordeal of Black Friday those who still haven't found all the great deals that they wanted are encouraged to "shop small" and support small businesses both local and online.

    Small businesses offer a unique advantage over the big box stores in that while you may not find the latest and great electronic gadgets and gizmos at super low prices you will get great deals on items not found in those impersonal super stores. Plus you'll receive great personalized service from owners and employees who actually care about their customers.

    Small businesses are the backbone of the American and world economy. While figures may differ depending on the source used it's commonly agreed that small business (companies with fewer than 500 employees) employ over 50% of the US workforce and may account for up to 75% of those in the job market. The difference is that many one person or owner operated companies get missed by many of the statistics if there is no payroll data being reported to the government.

    Excalibur Brothers is pleased to be in the small business category. What this means is that Excalibur Brothers is small enough to care about their customers and visitors. We know that you the customer are vital to the survival of our business and that we must take care of you in a professional and courteous manner or we will not survive. So we offer great service, competitive pricing, fast shipping and the promise that if and when a problem arises with your order that it will be taken care of to your complete satisfaction.

    Customer satisfaction takes priority over "making a buck" at Excalibur Brothers. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase or we will make it right. We are so confident that you will love your new sword, knife or medieval gothic novelties that we back it with a 10 day no questions asked satisfaction guarantee. We don't charge a restocking fee like many companies and while return shipping is the responsibility of the customer we even refund any ground shipping you may have paid when you placed the order. In the unlikely event of a damaged or defective item we even pay the shipping to have the item returned and replaced.

    So to celebrate being in the Small Business category we encourge you to "Shop Small" today November 24, 2012 as part of the Small Business Saturday event sponsored by American Express. During our Small Business Saturday Sale we are offering 10% off our everyday sale prices and even have a few extra special items that you will save from $10 to $25. We'd love to be able to offer 75% off our prices like the "Big Box" stores but the truth is we don't mark our product up enough to be able to mark them down that much. That means everyday you are getting the best prices we can offer and still make a fair profit and stay in business.

    So today and everyday remember to "Shop Small" and keep the American economy growing.

    Thanks for visiting and shopping with Excalibur Brothers.

    Lawrence Piper - Proud owner of a small business.

  7. The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported Thursday Nov 1, 2012 that a 57 year old grandmother and her 13 year old grandson were stabbed to death on Minneapolis' north side Monday October 29, 2012 by what police think was a samurai sword.

    22 year old Ishmael Roberts22 year old Ishmael Roberts has been charged with 2 counts of 2nd degree murder in the double homicide. Roberts was apprehended in Iowa on Monday. The sword however was not found and police believe he discarded the sword somewhere between the twin cities and where he was taken into custody in Waterloo Iowa.

    For more details see the complete article at http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_21907333/minneapolis-slain-woman-grandson-idd

    Please keep in mind that this is not the fault of the samurai sword but rather the person who weilded it. Swords and knives are tools just like any other tool. A hammer can be used to build a house or to hit someone in the head. The tool has no idea how it is being used. It is the intent of the person controlling the tool that determines if it's use is good or bad.
