Looks very attractive. The tsuka also looks very attractive on that photo, looks like a regal red.

Rattan

Postby cybernex » Thu Dec 01, 2005 4:09 pm

I finally got the rattan now i've just got to fit it

If you need to find rattan go to google.com and type in rattan binding not rattan wrap
if you type rattan wrap you'll just ge a lode of rattan furniture suppliers.

OK here you go, last one untill i take more picks (unless you want photos of my scared thumb and a warning about sword safety LOL).

P.S. (off topic) anyone know where the forum link on the main page has gone?

P.P.S. Safety Warning, Katanas Are Surgically/Very Sharp!! (LOL)
