New project is currently underway. This time it's Vergil's katana, Yamato, from the Devil May Cry series. The real series, not this new DMC crap.

This time its going to be a bit different from the scratch builds that I usually do. For this I'm going to be refinishing my first katana, just a cheap set piece that my parents bought for me when I was a kid, and giving it new life as Yamato.

I plan to reuse the fittings and saya, for convention safety I'll make a new blade. Although I may try my hand at molding and casting a copy of the actual blade. Something non-metal will be the result either way. The tsuka, hilt, will be remade and the tsuaka-maki or hilt wrapping will be a completely custom job.

Write-ups and pictures of past projects are still coming, but... I'm lazy, so it might be a while.
