  1. Whipped up these two kiridashi from the leftovers of the billet of wrought iron and w2, that I have used for quite a few recent projects. All that remains is to sign ,patinate and polish the edge, and they'll be done.
  2. Thanks Wes , after the little lay off last year, it's great to be producing again. Now I have had a few small successes, it is time to push forward with some more ambitious work.
  3. Thank you, this has made interesting view. Great work, look forward to seeing the finished project.
  4. Lacquer polished, and all done, off to a new home.
  5. Always liked the sugata of this, so decided to go for it, very much as an experiment. Used the same aldo's W2 as my last few blades, this time however I felt brave and did the heat treatment without clay. Need to send to polish to see the full impact, but my crude window polish is showing nice results in the hamon. Nagasa 23cm This one doesn't have a buyer yet, and will be available once polished, interested parties should pm me.
  6. All done,final photos of the shiny lacquer. Blade is still in the polish it was at the top of this topic, as it will be used in the dojo.
  7. That is a very well executed piece of work, lovely clean lines, and elegantly design. Great work.
  8. Another tanto underway, all that remains is to polish the lacquer , and make a horn mekugi. Blade is w2 kanmuri-otoshi zukuri, Nagasa 22cm kissane 5.5mm, withe aikuchi koshirae. Hybrid polish hamon is mixed polshed as suguha, but is right close to the shinogi near the kissaki.
  9. Great activity in the hamon, and the shinogi looks nice and sharp. Any chance of a full length photo of it laid flat?
  10. Well that one is finished packed, and shipped. Mei is still a little embarrassing, but better than the last time.
