Awesome! That blade is just so perfectly shaped. A few questions if you don't mind - how did you groove the butt cap and guard pieces, and what is going on towards the spine of the blade just below the forge finished area? It looks like another hamon up there, especially in the last pic.

I have always greatly admired your work. This is no exception.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

thank you all for your kind posts!

 

@george ranier,

 

the butt cap and the other parts are grooved with small round jewelery-files.

this curved line directly under the scale-section seems to be a decarbonated (right term??) surface-area.

for sure not a second hamon- unfortunatelly...:-(((

 

best regards

That hamon is gorgeous.
