Finished Finally, Hira Zukuri Wakizashi W-2 Steel

Recommended Posts

Well gents and gals I am finished with this project for a wonderful and patient customer. The blade in saya is 22" unsheathed it is 20" Nagasa is 11 1/2" Width at mune-machi to ha-machi is 1 3/8" thickness at mune is just over 3/16", Hamon is Gnome.

Tsuka-Maki was done by Brian Drier of Ronin Swords. I butchered it badly. He is truly a master of his craft as well.

Here are a few images of the finished piece. I am hoping the customer will enjoy the blades as much as I did.

That looks like an extremely nice peace hardware that anyone could be very proud of making. Just for my taste i would liked to have seen little bit more strong lines on the tip.

But then again very very nice looking peace.

You have to forgive my English isint the best.
You see here on the following link to a photo how there is a line that comes across where the tip starts to curve up.



That's just my personal taste. On the other hand you blade is just beautifully crafted and I would be very proud if I could make one as fine looking as yours. Only time will tell

best reg
