here are some pics of a sword i recently finished. it's a sister sword to one i had forged out around christmas. It is made from c1045 and quenched with gunters super quench. I went with the whole green theme on this sword from the cotton wrap to the saya with the ray skin. The fittings on the sword are a bamboo theme, with a 14inch full tang handle that is triple pinned with brass pins. The saya is made of poplar with ray skin sanded down and brass fittings. I chose a hunter green metalic automotive paint with a thick clear cloat. I am currently waiting on the sageo in the mail it is black. I have two more blades to

finish that are from this steel i forged back before christmas, one is a fantasy blade and a knife after they are done i have about 200 feet of cable i plan to play with. The wrap on the handle of the sword is a dark green, even though it looks black in pics. hope you like. I only hope to get better with time and practice. this sword is only japanese inspired.

Do you make every aspect of the sword ( from the blade, tsuba, fittings, tsuka, and saya)? This is very nice work. Where do you find the time, I would love to make something this nice.

i do make every aspect of the sword. you seem to find time when it turns into an obsession.
