Thanks for the update ! ...
cant wait to see these done !

Frank

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!

I always like to talk swords, email me! danielfairlyknives@gmail.com

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

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

Well WTH, I was wrong!
for once!
I'd love to see a sword from you bro!

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

Frank
