Mounting nihonto

Recommended Posts

I am curious as to how one makes the battle-mounting for nihonto. I could probably do the tsuba OK, but the fuchi, kashira, kurikata, saguri, and minuki will pose large problems. I am also curious as to how one mounts a tachi.

I guess what I need is a website that tells you the process of making the afore-mentioned objects.

Thanks.

I am sure there are folks on IForgeIron (a blacksmithing and metal working website) that can assist you in your search. You may want to ask the question at the IForgeIron Friday Night LIVE Knife chat.

It's all just basic metalworking, shaping the metal until it looks the way you want, just set out and try to make any one of them, and you will learn how.
