    Have you seen the 'ible for this? In it, I make the blade from an annealed spring, then hardened and tempered it.
    I'm pretty sure there is a link in the desc.

    Thanks, I'm glad you're inspired! If you make something cool, don't forget to post a photo :) I have a few pictures of katana model 2.0 on my how-to blog

    Yea checked them out too, shame about YouTube commenters huh, made a few planters out of glass bottles using a burning string technique that wasn't nearly as clean as yours

    I'm confused, why are you posting two relatively identical Instructables?
