Japanese Fusion blade for my son


Recommended Posts

I have not posted in a while I have been busy. Anyways I made this blade for son who wanted something Japanese so I decided to do an East meets West blade with some cheeky pop culture thrown in.

My boy is 6 and loves Pokemon so I made some wrought iron menuki poke balls.

1095 differentially heat treated blade 6"ish

Wrought iron tsuba and kashira 

Copper seppa and fuchi which I attempted to chase a little.

Yeah he loves it , I wanted to do something a little simpler but as per the norm I went over board on the handle.

Nice work! I'm a huge fan of eastern fusion blades, this one almost looks like a mini naginata to me, very cool!

I never really thought of that but that is awesome! Thanks
