Very nice! I like the menuki selection also. I have a Wakizashi done in jabara-maki that is falling apart. Sounds like it is a pricey job to have re-wrapped and takes quite a bit of skill and patience to do well.
Cool! The 'interwoven' crossovers are very interesting, reminds me of some of the 'tightly knit' wrapping techniques I've seen on Chinese styled wraps. How's this style hold up to use? It's a very interesting take. Although that menuki seems like it might wiggle out of place...that's just me though, very unfamiliar with this style. Very cool theme too, by the way. You seem to use consistently tasteful samegawa, which looks particularly choice with the color scheme.
As always, thanks for sharing! Your work always impresses.
This is ajiro-kumiage-maki jabara. It is made according to the standard. However, for hard work in dojo, kata-hineri-maki is definitely better . Thank you for your good words. I will show the final effect soon.
AndiTheBarvarian: We had this once as a construction site in the neighborhood sucked much power. Some units did work, some not, very strange.

christain: Major power fluxes and outages wide-spread all across N.E. Texas, and a big explosion and fire at a Eastman facility in Longview, Tx.

christain: It was just sooo weird. We each have lamps on both sides of the bed. Hers went out but mine stayed on...and they are both plugged into the SAME wall socket?!?! I used to work in the electrical business, and I've never heard of such.

christain: Oh wow...We just had an electrical 'brown-out'. That's never happened here that I remember. Weird thing is, some of the lights went off, others didn't. Dish TV went off. AC shut off. Everything's normal now though. Happened at my sister's next door too. ?

ouroboros: N I could almost buy a small airship with what I'd save 95$ off

ouroboros: Now all I need is an airship!

christain: You'd be the talk of the neighborhood wearing a top hat and swinging a katana around!

ouroboros: I missed the leather steampunk top hat damnitall

christain: I said I MAY do a vinegar treatment. If I do, I'll definitely post pics.

ouroboros: I watched the spearhead fly by...lemme know via some pics how that turns out

christain: Got my Viking spear head just today from the DotD last week! This thing's bad-ass---solid as a rock. I may do a vinegar treatment on it for some artificial aging.
