Bleach: Benihime V2 by chioky Bleach: Benihime V2 by chioky
THIS SWORD IS FOR SALE, NOTE ME FOR MORE DETAILS

I thought I should make that clear before people start going "hey I thought you said you never make the same sword twice?" or "hey does that mean you are going to sell the old one?". The answer to all those questions is no, no and no. It all happened three days before my May 2009 MCM Expo that I thought to myself "I should improve my benihime" It is 2 years old and was quite worn out, the handle wrapping was coming un done and the paint was peeling. So since I do not make the same sword twice I decided to improve my original Benihime (Crimson Princess)

THIS SWORD IS FOR SALE, NOTE ME FOR MORE DETAILS

:star: Improvements :star:

.The entire handle was rounded to a more oval shape
.Faux ray skin wrapping was used to wrap the handle
.Tsukamaki level 4 was used with black cloth strips
.The end hilt was cut down shorter to 3 inches
.Thin strips of balsa used for the end hilt details
.I used a new red tassle exactly the same look
.I had sewn the benehime knot together tightly
.I had made a new gold lace chain for the handle
.I screwed in the lace chain with a hooked screw
.I added balsa details to create the inner lip on the tsuba
.I had sanded the tsuba into symetrical dimensions
.I used a richer gold spraypaint with gloss coat


So yeah I think thats all, I did all those improvements in 2 days *is proud* because originally I thought I took on aboard too much to handle before the convention. Well anyway the tsukamaki was very accurate BEFORE I took it to the convention, however these photos were taken afterwards, and well all the diamonds are out of alignment, bummer, thats what happens when multiple people handle your sword lol
