We jokingly call this the "Lands-katana". It is about 41" in the blade, but only about 8" in the handle. It was meant for a horseman, really. It is LIGHT- 2 pounds, 14 oz- less than a Kg.! 1050 steel, mild steel, English Walnut and pewter for the "rivets".

Thanks! I'm thinking I may need to make the "curvilinear hilt" type of handle on a kreigs blade, now- because of *Ekuneshiel and his battle rouge... Damn him!!

No true. Every time I create something- I end up bleeding...

heh... One almost exactly like it is in a museum. Can't recall which one, though, as I lost the data~ We call it the "Lands-Katana"... It's a landsknecht thing...

yeah- I can get the blades tempered by a friend- but only rarely... That's why I make knives mostly. That was a blade made for fun, though...
