    Recently finished up this one in W2. This is my 5th blade with hamon and I have to say it's very addictive. Thanks to John Doyle for helping me learn his process for hamon. The handle is African Blackwood and the guard, spacer and pin are bronze.

    I almost bought this one since I am obsessed with blades with a hamon and this one is PERFECT!
