Recycle Blade

Recommended Posts

Here is a blade I have decided to finish. I made it last year from a bunch of old files I had forge welded together. The handle is 13 inches long and the blade is 31 inches long with an 1.5 of Sori. layer brass habaki, fittings are made from mild steel. handle is made from ash with a spray epoxy coating I wanted to try out. The handle also has a battle wrap with half a 308 shell for menuki. The saya is made from poplar with the same coating as the handle. Well hope you like my recycle blade katana.

I started out with four billets with around 8-10 files in it. Squished them all down then squished them together. I think I had folded the whole mess a couple of times also. I made this blade over a year ago before i moved, I should have a couple others done soon.
