It's the sand-casty-looking texture on the habaki that makes that look great, to my eye. Well done, that's really beautiful.

hello together,

 

thank you very much for your kind words-

I`m happy, that you like it!

 

it`s fun for me, to build such bigger ones,

I allways try to have one or two of these `eyecatchers` for the next exhibitions....

 

@ nick steele,

this `cast`- look is made like this:

habaki and the other bronzepart are built up and brazed with thin broncesheets, which I had rolled

together with a sheet of coarse sandingpaper in my jewelleryroll.

@ alan, chris and ETX chartaine:

thank you for your posts too!

 

@ ETX chartaine:

 

I used clay as usual

quenching was done in brine ( max. 6 sec!!!!, then in oil! ) with a little soap for vessels

( I don`t know the right word for the lotion in the dishwater...)

it lowers the superficial tension of water, so it will crawl under the clay and pops it away.

 

when this happens too fast, you`ll get no hamon or a broken blade,

but sometimes, like here, you are happy to get such an interesting line...

 

I have to admit, it was luck and no skill!

a japanese swordsmith in the 127. generation surely has this skill, I don`t...

 

I hope, you understand my german english-

soap for vessels

 

Dish soap. Or occasionally washing-up liquid.
