Finally! A Katana Tuts. I'm not sure if anyone is looking for one but as a Tuts maker I feel there is a definite need to have a katana tuts in the gallery as it is one prop that is used by multiple characters. This katana however (commissioned) is for Nagumo Kaoru, a character from an otome game; Hakuouki. And no I haven't tried nor planning to play said game.

If you find this useful leave a like, comment, subscribe and I'll see you next time /brofist... oh wait, this isn't youtube :doh:

LOL much?

finally, one more Question: How long did you take for this awesomeness?

Started at April 15 then finished at May 8. This includes searching for the right wood and all.
Took longer than necessary due to juggling it with other props and work as well.
Thanks! :D

Omg, Thank you so much for sharing!! I love swords and there's a katana set that I've always wanted to own (also from a character in Hakuouki) I have a tiny version but I wanted a Real Life size. Sadly it's  impossible for me to buy/import one but now thank to your tutorial I can look forward to make all of them myself! It's like a dream come true, thank you!
