Katana in progress Answered

I'm forging my second sword of the summer this one wont come out as badly as my other one because I'm putting lots more time into it and much better materials.

Progress report 1
1. exploded view!
2. different exploded view
3. my custom tsuba
4. custom habaki (that I want to paint gold or put gold over the steel)
5. I don't know the name of this but it holds the handle together
6. the forged end of the tang.
7. view of the back of the handle and blade.
8. frontal view of the blade

obviously it's not sharpened...

Anytime I see someone making their own sword, this video is the first thing that comes to mind. Looks like you're doing a pretty good job though.

Thanks heaps for the link. Why do you say 'obviously its not sharpened?

because I haven't sharpened (or forged) the blade yet.

Yeah, but why is it 'obvious'?

Because you can plainly see the edge of the sword and it's not sharpened.

Well I'm pretty new to this kind of stuff so I can't really tell the difference because the view is a side view.
