    So you've possibly noticed the whole sword thing kinda going for me.

    I have always been fascinated by swords and decided to kinda just go for it with occasional pieces that I'm interested in making.

    so this here is a Ko Katan / O Wakazashi

    W2 steel done with a water quench

    19.75" Nagasa (edge length)
    1.5" Motohaba (width from edge to spine at the handle end)
    .4" Motokasane (thickest measurement at the handle end)
    .3" Sori (depth of curve at the spine)

    I will be offering it as a bare blade with Habaki but can certainly do a mounting if there is interest.
