    I'm speak English not very well then I feel it's hard to explain to you step by step to make the blades... sign1sign1sign1
    1st: cnc machines used to cut steel blade
    2nd: use this tool to sharpening
    [​IMG]
    3rd: Steel baked in different time
    4nd: use the tool to sharpening again
    ...again... again
    I lost 4 days to make a blade. Handmade 100%
    Vietnam lacks many of the tools so I have to do more handicraft :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    You aren't kidding when you say handmade. Then, the blade is polished steel, not chrome plated??:eek:

    Hand polishing steel to that brightness means that you have a very high quality steel and very good metal working skills. Do you know what hardness steel you are making the blades too? Not really important as you are not fighting with them. Just curious. Do you shape the blades by cutting or do you heat treat the curve into the glade? Again, just curious. :)

    Thank Zathros for your compliment. Blade after cutting by cnc machine is not as hard as expected. So I baked it in a different time to increase the hardness. The Hardness same a kinves. Sword not follow the traditional Japanese way. I just made ​​a model sword like the katana but it can not hard like a real katana :cry:

    It is beautiful enough and looks jut like what are looking at, a beautiful sword. I am an admirer of metal working also. You have combined the various mediums and have made something special.
