Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

There was a guy in Oregon selling some last year..do a web search for craiglist in oregon and "Japanese power hammer"
There may be an advert in the for sale section of this site..it would be an old one.
