This is my 10 yr old son’s (Brendan) upgrade for his ninja costume for halloween. The blade is birch with natural finish, the hilt is 1/4 MDF painted black, And the handle is Philipine Mohogany with an ebony stain and all of the above have a gloss Varathane finish. He did all the cutting for the blade on the bandsaw and then finished and shaped it on the Ridgid osc. sander. I turned the handle but he did the final sanding, staining and clearcoat.

Look out bad guys!!!

A fine sword indeed, and reminiscent of the swords of Kunihiro. In fact, it bears a striking resemblance to his “Yamaubagiri”. Sorry, but I can’t find a picture online. (amazing!) Nonetheless, excellent work. Keep it up!

Awesome work. A skilled craftsman and warrior.

Very impressive piece! The lines of this are really quite nice. I’m sure you’re proud to see your son have an interest in your love of wood.
