Swords

I recently have re-awoken a serious interest of mine: swordsmithing. I am in contact with a swordsmith and his apprentice,but they are both a bit far from me. If you have any expirience in bladesmithing, swordsmithing, blacksmithing, or are an apprentice, I would like to hear about your expirience and how you got started. Or if you are at least educated in this feild, I would like to hear about it, or get recomendations on what books to read. I have a basic outline about how the blades are made, but that's about it. Or, just converse among yourselves, there is a serious lack of REAL swords on instructables. I mean, I look up the word 'sword' and I get tips on how to make replicas and models. That's just fine, but I intend to be making a living offa these things. Among other things... Also, I am talking about the Japanese method of swordmaking. Not necessarily katanas, but the method seems to have great quality to it. *a side note* A quality blade is at least $200-up, and I'd be working with tamahagane. I would not buy one for any less.

Great idea!

I know you guys are talking about real swords but I made this really cool Sword from one of my favorite games and would appreciate it if you guys could give me a Vote to win this contest. Swords are really cool and I think this one deserves to win! :)

You might contact "Do-Not-Turn-Off-The-Power". He's into swords. I think his dad (or grandfather) was a serious swordsmith.
He's been banned, and he's one of the "manga sword" crowd. I could beat him in a confrontation, actually I could beat most people in a sword confrontation....
What's wrong with manga swords?
Most have a slightly warped sense of reality... our friend Do_Not_Turn_Off_The_Power was a good example of this. I'm personally most fond of the rapier, hand and halfer, then katana.
