    Just finishing this one up, and thought I'd share. The 7-1/2" long blade is .275" thick W2 steel, with some freaky hamon, and a polished fuller. Both the spine and the squidgey bit below the ricasso are beveled, and the 'guard', if such a small thing could be called such, is black G10. The handle is a wasp-waisted frame handle of G10, pinned and epoxied in place,then covered in black rayskin and wrapped, with a sterling silver menuki. Point of balance is just behind the 'guard'.

    As I've never had any luck in capturing hamon with a camera, here's a crummy video I took with my phone in the shop, as there's not enough sunlight up here in the Snow Belt:




    Thanks for looking!
