Something I am working on, using a bit of African inspiration and Japanese technique. Copper, shibuichi and sterling silver. I am still thinking about the blade material and shape. It will either be a traditional kogatana blade using 1070 or W2, or a damascus blade. Comments welcome!
Hi guys. I finished this little "pocket nihonto" today. The handle measurements (95.6mm x 14.3mm) are the measurements used for the making of a "kozuka" , the handle of a katana's companion knife. The blade is 1070, the handle is hand carved wrought iron. Questions and comments welcome!
