Small Tribal Kwaiken


Recommended Posts

Hey guys here is another kwaiken I just finished up. It was actually a cut off piece from a larger kwaiken that I still need to finish.

I normally would have chucked such a small piece, but this one kinda spoke to me.

It has an epoxy soaked hemp wrap handle, and polished hamon.

I gave it a shorter, more traditional length handle as well

This is the first time I have used 1095(Aldo's), and only the third hamon I have tried. I am very pleased with hot it turned out.

I also tried out my new etcher and stencil. I will still use my makers mark periodically , but with a name as unique as mine, I might as well use it!

It is about 3/16" thick at the spine. The OAL is 8 7/8", with a 5" blade.
