Ive been working on this for a friend in exchange for some print shop work he's doing. Working on the final polish of the blade now, trying to bring out a hamon (my first). The blade is 1095, 8" long and 2.5" wide, handles are going to be camatillo with ebony bolsters and brass pins.

Thank you all :) here's a little update to the progress- finished polishing up the blade and moved on to the handle- finished roughing out the shape with a rasp, on to lots of sanding next.

Handle is done! First coat of linseed oil is on it, couple more of those and it will be ready to get an edge- the wood is a little more purple than what the pictures look like
