So I've taking on a project that's kind of been on the back burner a while, I was asked to make a weapons demo sword for a martial artist to use in co petition. Needless to say swords aren't really my thing but I decided to give it a try. Here it is so far it's 1084 steel, 18" blade with an 8" handle and my first attempt at grinding a double edge. I thing it's turning out alright so far but I have no idea what the end product will look like...lol! But it will have nickel silver bolsters (or whatever you call it on a sword) a kind of Si type guard and I have black ebony for the handles. Let me know what you guys think and if I'm heading somewhat in the right direction on this (completely new to this type of build). Oh yeah it seems to be very hard to take pics of double edged thingy's...lol!!!
