Do you remember that six week project I was working on .? Still working on it ! I can,t make up my mind.! When I started it , it was supposed to be a Jian , (Chinese double edged sword).! I was having so much trouble hammering that hot hunk of metal , I settled for a (Dao , Chinese single edged broad sword),..! Then I didn,t like the handle .! So , I made a new one..! There are five different species of wood . Each piece is cut at a 20 degree angle just for the Kool factor.! I now have the handle made and the hand guard made . I want to add one small piece on the end , a small oval made of black walnut on the end. Almost there.! Maybe....?
