Hey there,
This is my first sword i have been forging and working on the last 7 month's, it took me a couple of month's to find all the info and did a lot of research before i could start this project and i got so far to the quenching soon.
Here some pictures of what i have been working on, hope you like it, cheers Igor;)

Interesting piece ... nice work on mune....

The mune detail at the back is not original but i like it, also i filed the shinogi line away so it's more a hira-zukuri with niku instead of a shinogi-zukuri, these swords didn't have that and want to stay true to the original Warabite-To;)
