Another Cover Sword


Recommended Posts

Howdy again!!

Well I just finished another  of the "cover swords" for book IV..here it is...didn't turn out half bad if you ask me..especially for a bald barbarian..

This one is a O-Katana in 1070 Electrite  (that is 1070 with a small amount of Si..)  with a 31" blade...Shinogi Zukuri geometry with two scraped in Bo-Hi  the full blade length .. Koshi-sori (most curve in the first 1/4 to 1/3 of the blade up from the habaki) which is an older style of curvature...

Choji Hamon that is very frosty and has nice amount of activity the entire blade length.... Dragonfly motif mounts in bronze with gold and silver leaf detailings.. Black samegawa under black and gold chevron pattern silk tsuka-ito.. I think this one came out especially nice..

Hope these pics turn out..  JPH
