    I've been admiring your work from afar for a while now Chris. It really is inspiring to me.
    I cant forge right now so got myself a little grinder, I'm going to setup a little firebrick forge and start grinding and heat treating.
    I believe you use charcoal? Do you forge or use stock removal?

    Hi Mumtaz
    Thanks for the compliments.I forge my blades from bar stock using a propane forge.I try to make the look as traditional as possible. I am constantly studying photos of old nihonto tanto to give me a visual guide.
