Fantastic. Did you make shirasaya for them? Would you be up to posting a photo or two of the unsheathed blades?

Really very beautiful. Lots of work, that.

You forged them yourself? That is a talent/dedication I truly respect and hope to one day learn (at least the basics of practically) - their saya, fittings are all so well done! congratulations on such a wonderful outcome!

Good lord, that's beautiful. How long were you working on this?

The wakizashi, maybe several months of my free time, the katana, about 4 years of my free time. I think if I condensed the working time into a full-time job, I could make a katana in one month minimum.
