Hey there folks, long time no post :) Concentrating on catching up with customer back logs, working with a few companies, and learning new things :)
Was going to use this blade to practice polishing before I learn to forge, butttt as always, bills bills bills...
So this Hanwei Tsunami wakizashi got a fully make over.
-Reworked original habaki
-Made new seppa with a traditional rokusho patina.
-reworked original tsuka to a full wrap of samegawa
-Antique fuchi in maple leaves and wave theme.
-Antique menuki in Tiger theme
-New hand carved horn kashira
-Saya was reworked and given HAND CARVED ribbing (this took 13 hours!) for the first third then a lacquered and polished or "samesaya" finish on the lower two thirds. She has new hand carved horn koiguchi, kurigata, and kojiri
-New and fitted simple iron tsuba that I gave a traditional black patina and sealed in wax.
Priced just to cover materials and not even all the labor on the saya ;)

That looks absolutely killer. I wanted to let you know that it's now mandatory to add an image of the sale item with an accompanying note showing your username and the current date. We know you're a straight shooter, but it's now a rule. Sorry for the hassle. Thanks.
