neil gagnon Posted May 24, 2011 Share Posted May 24, 2011 Here is one I just finished up for a customer. This is my first blade of this type of style, I normally do bowies and katanas. Steel I believe is around c1070, The overall length is 56 inches, Handle is 18 inches, Blade is 27 inches. Handle is epoxy over ash core with a cord wrap. The sheath is poplar. The guard is c1045. The blade is clay coated and quenched in water. Put a couple of picks with katana i finished recently to compare the size. Sorry about the picks very tricky to get both hamons at same time. The pink blanket doesn't help.Not much of a photogragher, anyways hope you like..
