    I was looking at them yesterday and I really can't wait to finish them!

    I am going to build a sanding area dedicated to finishing swords in my new shop and plan on many more after these!

    Later on this year I'll be getting to more swords, I have some on order and plan on more for sale here.

    Frank,

    I have to say, these are taking me way too long! If they fit in my kiln they would be finished long ago, heat treat prices are through the roof so I have been putting them off until I have a little more in the budget.

    They are on my mantle right now, I have to get them done soon!

    Good 'ole Daniel!
    Did you figure out that a 26" blade is a katana? :)

    I always like to talk swords, email me! [email protected]

    26" blade... over 2 shaku so it would be a katana

    I guess! :D ...not claiming to be an expert on Japanese sword terminology.

    1 shaku - tanto
    2 shaku - wakizashi
    3 shaku - katana

    Heck I really don't know enough to say who is right! :D The terminology is confusing too, I am pretty sure they are just talking the sharpened blade but I have seen both measurements used.

    I need to get ahead on things here and then I will send these swords off for heat treat, they are too big for my 24" kiln.

    I have the wakichete and katana both nearly done besides the heat treat, the hand sanding was the tough part on them. (lol I hope) Up next will be a tactical katana with tsuba for an order.

    I have also been planning a Cane Sword, I don't have the time to make it yet but I will one day! :D

    Sounds good!

    The cardboard is a great idea, I do that with any completely new design. Cool you are making a knife!

    daniel,
    I was just thinking about swords and
    remembered this thread ! and I believe
    you've gotten new equipment for your
    shop so I thought id ask if anything
    new was happening with these as far
    if there in the future line up to get
    finished ? ...
    p.s. idk how long you keep emails for
    but id like to know if you still have my
    email with my wakizashi design in it ?
    if so can you email it back to me ? I
    know its a long shot but hey you never
    know until you ask right ? thanks
