    Camp Daisho - sheath pg.2


    ADVERTISEMENT
    A "Daisho" is a Japanese term derived from the terms "daitō" (long sword) and "shōtō" (short sword).

    Here is a matched pair of camp style knives in a loosely Japanese theme hence the title.

    The larger knife has a 10 1/8" blade and is 15 3/4" overall. The long handle reminiscent of the Japanese theme.
    The short knife has a 4 3/8" blade and is 8 7/8" overall.

    Both blades are W2 and the fittings are wrought iron. Epoxied hemp wrap on aged white oak with a peined copper pin serving as "neji-menuki", both pin and decoration.

    I am thinking of a combination sheath in a cross draw, kind of furthering the theme.

    Thanks for looking.

    PS.As an aside, the clay on the blades were the same but this goes to show how much the geometry and thickness of the material can affect the hamon. When the results are happening in less than a couple seconds, it's not hard to imagine how difficult it is to compensate for all the variables. Instructive. Actually on the larger blade, in a more utsuri effect you can make out the similar pattern, which you can kind of see in the first photo.

    Such a treat every time Stuart posts up another outstanding adventure.

    Love the oak handles and that Camp blade shape.

    Stuart, thanks for the look at the camp guard. Great job!

    There is no apsect of these knives that I don't like. I'm looking forward to seeing the sheath setup.

    Fantastic set Stuart! The big blade has a Fogg-ish look to it that I find very appealing.

    Elegant and rustic. Hard to combine both, but flawlessly executed. Beautiful work as always, Stuart. Can't wait to see the sheaths.

    I especially enjoy how the blade on the big knife swells toward the tip, and how the little one doesn't that much.
    Fantastic set my man- yet another stellar effort on your part.

    Very cool! Great hamons and those handles look nice and I bet that hemp wrap gives some great grip too!
