Jesus, I very much enjoyed looking at that.

Very inspirational.

Dangerously so.

 

Thank you for taking the time to document your work!

"The heck with a seax, how about a falcata! Do one of those, with accurate materials, geometry, fittings, and sheath. The Fiery Beards would not be able to deny that your beard is ablaze!

 

Wonderful video by the way and an outstanding katana but... We expect that from you!

Jesus has already made a very stunning Falcata. It is SO beautiful!

Jesus a beautiful and inspiring video thank you! I am in awe of what you can do with that hammer, I need to give the one i made a second try, with a shorter handle like yours.

 

I am sorry for the new chip in your anvil :(

I do. For the last three weeks I have been looking for my hard silver solder and the surgical hemostat that I use to hold habaki for brazing to no avail. :angry:

 

Thank you for your comments, Bill.

That is astounding. The blade looks fantastic. It creates the core manifestation of the theme I think. The long o-kissaki and hamon suggest bamboo leaves.

Very inspiring, and excellent work.

 

Jesus, you might like the music of this group:

They do all kinds of interesting music, some of it is very traditional Japanese, some is based on music from other cultures.

Amazing work Jesus! I'm always impressed and the new shop looks fantastic and well equipped (I'm extremely jealous)

 

As for an order for the people doing Japanese styled work I propose we have Hamon(y) Beards or maybe a hamony mustache :D

 

Maybe I'll whip something up when I'm not when my back feels better.

Good sir, that is the most beautiful sword in the eastern style that I have ever seen. The hamon looks like clouds on a fine summer day. Whisps of dreams if you will. Vulcan himself would be envious!

amazing video and sword

I would like to see more such

 

I like the sharp lines Shinogi

Can I ask how you are doing the final stage of polishing ?

The description of hybrid polishing is in the forum somewhere but basically, after reaching a 2000-2500 grit, the blade is etched with a mild diluted acid, the remaining oxides removed and powdered abrasives used to brighten things up. I rely mostly on the abrasives rather than the etch.
