    My latest

    Here's one that's coming along swell, for me anyway. I wanted to try something in the nanbokucho style, though not tachi length, so here's my effort.

    Nagasa- 28"
    Motohaba- 1.25"
    Sori- .75"
    Looks somewhat saki-zori to me.

    Hand forged 1050 steel, fresh from the quench last weekend and a quick arato polish and etch. Anyone else who can't wait for a decent polish to see the hamon? This hamon is somewhat what I'm hoping to get, though I wish the activity in the center went to both ends. I've still got an even heating problem.

    Dan,

    Looking good! I only do tanto and the occasional Wakizashi myself, but I have the same problem. I have to see immediately what I have in the way of hamon.

    Good work. Show us a pic after its polished

    Hey Gary, thanks. Nice web sight, nice work yourself. Mostly tanto here too, but I've gotta delve into the long stuff sometimes.
