Hello lets see what everyone has! This is my sword 100% hand build and forged. Wood handle with white dried eel skin covering the wooden handle. The folding style is orikaeshi sanmai construction and has been folded thousands of times.
It also has a certificate of authenticity along with the sword smith's info on the tang of the blade. I personally disassembled the handle to check the tang and make sure it matched the picture in the certificate. I will never ever unwrap a handle again because wrapping it back up was not easy and took me 4 hours to get it correct with the knot facing inside when wore and used rice mixture as glue as the samurai did to help hold the knot.
The blade had a 12 process sharpening process along with clay tampering on the blade.
