This has been my favorite project so far – The blade is walnut laminated between 2 pieces of red oak. The blade guard is padauk. The handle is walnut and the piece that slips down the blade to lock the guard between the handle is mahogany. I feel like the wooden katana is a right of passage. Sheath coming soon……

Is it for sparring?
Now you need to wrap the handle:

I invited my wife to spar with me but for some reason she’s just not interested??? Women? And I’ve definitely crawled down a serious wrapping handle rabbit hole on YouTube – I’ll wrap it after I make the sheath.

Nice work and good wood combo too.
