i am just surprised how well the hamon and the folds came out in the pics, they are more evident in the flesh, plus you can see the folds in the hamon as well on the Dragonfly Kat and Tanto.

I will take a couple of pics of my smaller custom jobbies tomorrow, might even take some of the bits i have made (havent made a sword yet thats a bit too hard at the moment although one project is going to be bigger than the tanto ;) )
