A while back a customer asked me to make him a sword replica for Sakura con (giant anime convention in Seattle.) Now that I am on break from UW I had the time to finish it. The sword is a copy of one from a show called gintama and I copied it as best I could right down to the Japanese characters carved into the handle. The sword is made of 2 pieces of ash and was drawn out by hand on my shaving horse. the sword is finished with water based dye and about 7-8 layers of wipe on poly.
