Kwaiken/tanto nearly done

Recommended Posts

Nearly finished with the rail clip tanto. Been a fun build utilising some new techniques and materials. The blade was a practice piece that turned out quite nice so I had to finish it lol. The fittings are made of salvaged copper pipe that I cut into sheets and hammered to shape. The fuchi and kashira are both one solid piece, no soldering.  The materials used include a mokume tsuba, embossed leather inlay in lieu of ray skin, brazed copper habaki, copper fuchi and kashira, nylon cord, brass seppa, bamboo mekugi, handle body is a formed polymer product (experimental) and the blade is made from a rail clip.
