The Swordmaking Tutorial: Pt 3



The Swordmaking Tutorial: Part 3 (Cutting out the Sword)

Have you ever asked yourself "How do I make a sword?"more pricesely a katana. Well If you have asked that question then I am here to help you answer that. This swordmaking Tutorial will cover everything you need to know about swordmaking. It has an attractive layout, easily readable discriptions, easier to understand discriptions and step by step pictures to know which process you are at. These swordmaking tutorials are aimed towards swordmakers and propmakers, however anybody is free to use them at their own leisure to try swordmaking.

Right in this part of the swordmaking tutorial this is the start of when you get your hands dirty. Now your actually going to be cutting out the tang and handles at this stage only. If you cut wrongly the parts of the katana out at this stage your katana is going to carry those mistakes all the way until its finished. Might I advise that you take care when using the coping and hack saw when cutting out the parts. You wont be able to cut off your fingers but you can seriously cut them. Remember to saw quickly but to cut out the lines slowly.
