    Hello sword people! Got the latest one ready to show!

    It's a large two-handed ring dao, with a titanium hilt and a blade made of forge-welded titanium alloy san mai. I'm very pleased with the dynamic balance of this sword. It floats to exactly where you need it, when you need it there.

    Excellent, congrats! I like the "hamon line" you get with your san mai, and as always, your musical selection.

    I still don't understand how titanium can give desirable results when it comes to swordsmithing.

    Most titanium alloys inherently have great attributes for a sword, the problem was figuring out how to retain those attributes while getting it "hard" enough to hold a good and sharp, durable edge. I put that word in quotes because it isn't really hardness, so much as the edge having the quality of not giving way to the medium being cut.
