  1. Missed the original post on this too. Really nice work. A most elegant shape! If I ever get back to the forge, one of these is on my bucket-list.
  2. Great tanto. And that copper copper is fantastic!
  3. P.Abrera


    Coming out of the woodwork to give this a thumbs up. Fantastic knives!
  4. Nice work! People will be surprised at how useful this shape and size of a chopper can be. Lotta work can be done sonerhing like this...doesnt hurt that its purdy too.
  5. Jesus' blade is beautiful and the mounting is a real home run. Congratulations, fine, fine work. Nice work on the "whales beard" wrap. Very nicely achieved.
  6. Did a bit of reading on similar fittings. Many were indeed done from sheet, and hollow. then filled with some kind of pitch. When I did a sword with langets I brazed.
  7. Thats a lovely piece of samegawa ...the blade's is fine work too. But then again, we already know you do beautiful blades.
  8. This is very nice work. Great piece!
  9. Ah yes, naginata naoshi. Its wonderfully shaped. Looking forward to the pics later on.
  10. Beautiful sugata on the shobu being polished!
  11. Excellent pieces. I very much like your choice of tsuka shape (Rikko?) and simple koshirae. I love the brown wood saya and olive ito on the first katana you posted. Is that leather ito?
  12. Let me add my congratulatiions. This is excellent work, sir! Bravo.
  13. Beautiful sugata Excellent, all around. A piece to be truly proud of, Jesus.
  14. Been a while since I was at the forge but when I did fullers on a sword-length blade, I went back and forth. Sometimes id make a boo-boo drawing the edge, and I'd need to go back to my fuller tool to re-establish the fuller or add a touch of width here and there to the blade in areas I didn't leave enough material to draw. But it all ended with quite a bit of cleanup at the grinder either way.
