This sword is handmade with no power tools (except a drill) out of strip pine wood and its full tang. This sword is a common katana very plain the only difference is the guard and colour of the handle wrap.

Where do is start with this sword I HATED MAKING IT. It was all silver paint except so many parts were unevenly painted. The guard @.@ the outside rim was SO difficult to cut becuase it was balsa wood and stick onto the guard. Cutting those seven damn small holes was a pain also. Attaching the ring proved VERY difficult. Then near the end i found out the guard was THE WRONG WAY ROUND. So i had to chisel away above the guard and put the guard right. So I had to remake the part above the guard from scratch and paint it. Then near the end the tip of the hole holding the ring broke off.

I don't have this sword anymore, but I am willing to make a brand new one that will make this suzumushi a MILLION times better, but I will wonder how serious you are about this
