Optional Extras
matching Blackend Bronze with Brass Inlay Kojiri (Scabbard Pommel) & Koiguchi (Scabbard Mouth) and some Brown Leather Tsuka-Ito (Binding Cord)

This is if i can be bothered (which i'm not realy at the moment, Because the Katana is now displayable and i don't want to over do it)

Dont Worry I know where to get parts from now if i'm gonna add any more to it.

Again Thanks To Every One Who Helped Me With This Project!!!!!

Personally,I wouldn't do any more as I prefer things relatively simple and 'authentic' in appearance.
Changing the Tsuba was a good choice imho and the Rattan is just enough,any more would have made it look a bit OTT,in my eyes anyway.
I think you've got the harmony/balance in customising this Bushido just right.

Praise from me,is praise indeed.....I don't hand it out like confetti.

So what's the next project bro'??

You guys are right if i'm gonna do anything else to it, I'll just change the ito for leather (but only when my ito starts to badly detearirate)
But in your & my eyes its finished!!
