last samurai sword

Postby barry52 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 12:14 pm

Just taken delivery of the above sword, it is by far tha best blade I have purchased from blades uk. The finish is much more than I expected for the price (£89.00). I have a foulded katana and the finish on this one is much better. The reason I went for this sword is that it dose not have a bohi and not that it is a movie sword, will add pics at the weekend.

Thanks, I am going to reshape the kissaki and polish and electro etch the hamon with salt water to make it look a bit more authentic.

Hi

For those that are interested I have posted some photos of my last samurai sword that I have started the reshape of the kissaki, their are 2 of the primary reshape and 1 of the sword as it comes out of the box. I will post the completed kissaki when I have completed the project.
