Hey all, this is probably my last finished blade of 2016 and I thought I would share it.
It is a one off Ko-wakizashi. This blade has the most sori I have ever done in one of my large blades, which I think really, really makes the look. The 13" blade is CPM3V of course with my high performance heat treat.
Between the fullers and nice distal taper starting midway down the blade it is extremely well balanced. The Tsuba and munuki are Anodized Titanium and the seppa is textured copper.
The Tsuka Ito is properly soaked in marine grade epoxy so it is rock solid, but looks completely natural.
While I enjoy doing the carbon fiber saya for these, not everyone can pony up for the amount of work that they take, and since this one is up for grabs I made it a very nice leather texture kydex sheath. The sword snaps in securely and could be carried inverted if desired.
Thanks for looking!!
