Hand Re-polish Syoubudukuri katana

Just re-polished one of my own katana
Blade was hand forged from 1095 high carbon steel, clay tempered/water quenched.

This is the sword I made for myself. Syoubudukuri design, 72 cm blade with overall length 104CM. very fast sword with incredible tough/sharp edge yet remain good flexibility.

Black silk wrapping handle/ray skin. Chinese Lion fitting (唐獅子/牡丹)
