Isa 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.Lu 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

I can see the effects of your having been allowed total freedom to create in this one. It's alive, even in pictures!

Very nice, the blade is amazing, and I really like how the ribbon of lacquer flares out towards the kojiri end of the saya.

Jesus, that is now one of my favorite swords. Especially the saya (?) is really beautiful. Just a great piece, and the themes hold it all together very well.
