Wa-Bocho and Wa-Petty

 

Here is a matching set that I made to bring to this year’s KTSA show in Kamloops. The link for the show is here: http://www.ktsa.ca/Gunshow.html

First up is a Wa-Bocho knife. Very similar to a Santoku, but with a slimmer profile. This is made from 15N20 steel. The handle is blue G10, curly Hawaiian Koa, and Gabon ebony.

Ko-tanto; Japanese take-down style tanto

Here is a Japanese take-down style Ko-tanto that I just completed. I completed this project after studying several WIP’s and researching the construction method of Japanese blades.

For the tsuka and saya I used Santos Rosewood. Both were both split down the middle, then I carved out the voids with a chisel in order to fit the tang and blade, and glued them back together.

The habaki was formed from an old piece of copper pipe. Although it isn’t the traditional shape, it serves the same purpose.

The tsuba was made from a piece of mild steel, and was treated with gun blue. The seppa were formed from a piece of copper pipe, as well as a piece of stainless steel. The mekugi was made from a piece of walnut.

The ko-tanto may be taken apart by gently tapping the mekugi out with a dowel and mallet. It is not meant to be taken apart constantly but may be done to conduct cleaning and oiling of the blade.

[B]Specs:[/B]

OAL: 10″ (excluding the saya)
Edge length: 5″
Height: 3/4″
Steel: Forged W1 with a hamon
