Nice new shirasaya from John T

Recommended Posts

Sharing a very nice new shirasaya from John Tirardo, he's had a pretty steady workload, good for the nihonto community, but worth the wait. He also found a well fitting replacement habaki as an added bonus.

Nagasa is 70.3 cm for size context.

Hey Charlie-

I shipped the blade out mid-May and it was ready by the end of March, so about 10 months. I think the normal time for a shirasaya is a little shorter but a big project bogged him down and I wasn’t in a rush, worth the wait.
