Hello and welcome, Remo


It's always good to have another metal basher here with us :) . Your own work looks very nice. I particularly like the gold wire inlay (?) on the bare wood saya.


cheers, Ford ( the tsuba guy :huh: )

Many thank for the tutorials in japanese metalworking,

Currently a make a all the works in my pieces ( saya, tsuka, blade ,habaki , togishi etc) except the fuchi , kashira and menuki ( making in casting brass by the other person).


I just try make your tecnique of inaly silver wire in stell tsuba ( sae 1045 stell ) i make chisel in old files , but the i think i make the shape of tools wrong ( include my poor technique ) , i try later in iron for more soft material.

Hi Remo,


I'm pleased the tutorials were of use to you. I am working on more and will eventually cover all the basics. My own web-site is very close to being launched. I'll post a notice at that time.


I also made my first chisels from old 6 inch files. I annealled them and sewed them each into 6 chisel blanks. Hard work but good steel for the job. I'll post some diagrams of Japanese chisel shapes, angles and measurements etc. on my site.


Best regards, Ford

Aloha Remo,


Welcome. Sorry it took so long to get to it. Things are cranking up around here. Good to see your work. I noticed from your avatar that you are from Minas Gerais. Isn't that in gem and mineral country, where a lot of gem carvers get their rough?

Hi Remo, I like your work. You have a very good tradition of knifemaking in Brazil. I have met some of your colleagues in the argentinean forum Armas Blancas, and in the brazilian subforum in the Knife Network, the SBC subforum from the Sociedade Brasileira de Cuteleiros.
