Katana in progress

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...
