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.
Let me just say before it happens that the "potty humor" will not be tolerated in this thread and any post that is made like that will be edited/deleted. There is enough of that junk going on by grown men in other threads. Thanks.
Nice swords guys. Never got into swords much but had a good friend who was heavily into them. I imagine it could become quite an expensive hobby if one decided to start collecting.
