Just a quick tip for anyone who would like to wrap the hilts katana-style: it might be easier (and way prettier) to order your katanas with a leather wrap and then do the tsuka-maki like this:

The more I look at the saber the more I think I hd have to have This before the Bane.

Amazing set! Adding the traditionnal tsuka-maki makes it even more prettier! I'm not very interested in the katanas sabers, and for a good reason: I already have a real Japanese Handmade Katana set (Katana & Wakizashi)! However, I must admit that they a very impressive display!

Griffon: Fleur de lis is correct. I like the symbol ... in German it is called the "Ritterlilie", which translates to "Knight's Lily". And yes, I sewed it to the inner wrap.



And I am working on a video review ... will take some more time, though.

Darth Revan: yes, I was pleased with the look the tsuka-maki adds to the sabers. But I decided to have another go at it. Mainly, because I used cloth as wrap, which isn't practical as it is moving when you work the saber hard. Also, the 20mm cotton band turned out to be too broad for my taste; I am going to try a 10mm leather band around a tightly fitted leather wrap.

Hi. Was thinking about getting a Katana but already have multiple long sabers. Do you notice much grip difference with the Wakizashi or the Tanto hilt lengths. Have you out of curiosity tried the three blades in each saber? I just want to get one for sparring only. Thanks.

''Fleur de Lys'' is the symbol of the Quebec, a canadian Province (Which I'm a proud representative)! I love your choice! My katanas have goldens dragons sewed in a red inner wrap, where you have a Fleur de Lys!

@Dauntless 7: Grip and hilt length will be covered in the video review for sure.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS THAT SHALL BE COVERED IN THE REVIEW, TOO, PLEASE POST AHEAD!

Update

So I removed the cloth and added a smaller (10 mm) dark faux leather wrap.


Large upper part ...


Short upper part ...


Short lower part ...


Much better grip than before.


More classic look, too.


Pleased. :cheer:


Would like to add some blue accents somewhere, though. Maybe paint? It would have to withstand some training sessions. Ideas anyone?

The updated black leather with spacing looks gorgeous! Maybe some acrylic paint in the gap between sections, along the lighter parts of the weathering. Not sure if that would give enough accent but I think it would withstand the training sessions in the gap.

Looks great!
You got triplets of Katana, Wakizashi and Tanto with indeed Japanese traditional wrapping.
And you can add Nagamaki made with one extension and Naginata made with three extensions and short blade. haha!

These look fantastic. When will your video be coming out. Will decide which length I will be ordering afterwards. Am now thinking the shortest, the Tanto. Would you please include why you cut the blades down to those specific lengths. :)

FINISHED! :woohoo:









And yes, the review is in the works, but I am not doing this alone, so we will have to be patient a little while more. Sorry for that, but blade length ideas are covered! :)
