NOT a gun...

...however, I wasn't really sure where else to put it!

Here's one I just finished up with the last bit of .25" Admiral steel 1095 I have left... it exhibits all sorts of cool and strange carbide banding when it's low temp thermal cycled (like what I do when I'm aiming to produce a cool hamon). The drawback is that it tends to blur the hamon and make it impossible to properly polish. The plus is that it makes a really nifty pattern that reminds many of the old-school bulat steel made in ages past. 10 inches long, 5.25" blade.

Hope you like it - it was lots of fun to make. NOT so fun to photograph, though... pardon the poor quality images. I really didn't spend enough time fiddling with the camera, and I'll be damned if there will EVER be a moment when I manage to capture hamon with a camera properly!!!
