Well here is what i have been up to lately, This is a big sword i am making for myself, kind of a challenge. The overall sword is 48.25 inches long with a 36 inch blade. The cutting edge goes from 1.25inches tapers up to 1.75 inches then tapers back down to the point. Right now I just started polishing at 80 grit. Probably will be awhile on this project. I am thinking of maybe a 15 inch handle on this one. The hamon and steel should be exact to the kitchen knife I did awhile back. Almost forgot it has about 1.50 inch of sori. Will post more pics when done. I have a couple of other projects on the go also with cable & w2 that I am working on.

Dang Neil, awesome!

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

Looks like one heck of a cutter. nice.

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.

I had no idea the hamon showed up that early in the polish!

 

the hamon will show whenever all or most of your scratches are running the same way. generally i check my hamon on a 36x belt straight out of the quench.

 

cool sword, neil.
