Katana Blade – Finished!

Click the image to jump to the big verison

Finished the blade for the new sword today. It’s usually something I do last but I wanted to start fresh with this Katana, so I made a completely new blade from scratch. As mentioned in a previous post, the blade is one piece and all the details are modeled in, such as the Tang and Blood Groove. The tip is also modeled correctly rather than pinching the points together and using the texture solely for detail.

I know it’s probably silly to put as much work as I did into the Tang being you’ll never see it, but i’m a weirdo and I like to do detail like that. Might as well when you can do it all with one piece.

    Well, you know that they say ‘The Devil is in the detail’

    Great looking blade so far, nothing wrong with being exact.

    Yea. Well the thing about detail is that people never really notice it except when it’s not there. All the little bits to make something exact are just things people expect to be there.

    I guess I meant to say “I would love to look at this sword, but i’m always angry so my eyes are really squinty”

    Greetings, I looked at the fights of your new katana this morning.
    The sound of your katana is unique. Kicked so that a wind may be beaten. A sword is extracted with gravely sound. I want to grasp your katana early.

    The sword is full of JUSTICE!!! :)

    That’s pretty sweet looking, Haruko. I just started working on another new blade myself, hoping it turns out half as nice as some of the stuff you’ve been working on.
