Sho is back with big brother Dai

Gone a few months to add dragon tsuba n match F/K. Also a professional ito wrap by David McDonald.
So good to see them together again.

Beautiful Stephen,  a great example of what time, taste and patience can accomplish. This answers the question "Is it worth taking on such a project"......absolutely!

The patina on sho reminds me of the sunset, or age tanned leather, or both. Very lovely!

just on a artistic point, i really enjoy how the design of the tsuba, as its directly placed to the point that most of the design is visable whilst being worn by the samurai.

 

so it could be enjoyed by the samurai and passing people in the street. very pleasing to the eye.

 

also I have a hunch that the suaka colour is much richer in hand
