    Just finished this one today, first San Mai 2nd hidden tang. 1084 and 15n20, stag and quarter mokume accents. 8 1/4” OAL 4” BL. Threaded and Gflex epoxy. Learned a couple things and realize how much more I need to learn about fitting. A couple things also bug me about it but I’m mostly pleased with the results.

    Thanks, it’s frustrating at times-especially when it comes to finish work, where I seem to struggle the most.

    Core is 15n20 sides are 1084, I’m working on another that will be reversed.

    Looks cool with the 1080 on the sides.

    Here is a pic of a quick etch I did on them while grinding just to watch the core.
