Yanagi

Postby SShepherd » Sat May 03, 2008 8:57 pm

Hi folks :D
I thought I'd show a few pics of something I just finished up.
This is a 9" yanagi, mirror polished , made from CPM154CM.
The handle is traditional chestnut shaped, ebony and horn, with a mokume pommel.

The back of the blade is fully concave ground.

What do you think?

Oh..here's the first pic, mirror polished stuff is a pain to take good photos' of :oops:

No, the primary bevel you see is flat ground.
