I Forge Iron

Folded steel Katana


Recommended Posts

Hello I am a new member here,    I am a swordsmith/ Bladesmith and I just finished this one.   The tsuka is Hard Missouri white oak with cherry accents To prevent tsuka from splitting.  It is hand forged fro 1075 and 9260 silcon steel . Its nice and limber . Never cut anything with it .

   Eventually I will outfit it with Tsuba and ito wrap.  I made 3 of these until I got one that did not delaminate a little . sword cutting edge is 29 "  I am cutting saya for it at the present time .

    Thanks for looking  ... James
