    Very cool. It appears in the photos as if the 1075 has a grain pattern like tamahagane. Is that correct?

    Where did you get the blade?

    Thanks , the Steel is 1075 from Aldo , clayed and water quenched . Blade is collaboration between myself and a friend . The Steel is monosteel , nothing like tamahagane which is folded many times . Hopefully I will finish habaki in day or two . I would post a tutorial but, those have been posted many times . Had to send oshigata of blade to
    namikawa heibei because its a bigger blade with long kissaki . He advised me to send drawing of blade to make sure its the right size . They have the best saya wood you can get .... I have started on the tsuba ( copper) Not hard to forge . Already made standard Katana sized fuchi and kashira from Shakudo . Haven't worked on much in last year or so . Might as well take my time and do it properly . I usually mess up If I get in a hurry...... Bubba
