This sword is handmade with no power tools (except a drill) out of strip pine wood and its full tang. Ah finnaly the second sword of the Second Bleach Sword Project is done only 6 more to go!! Lets hope we find out its name so I can change the title.

I had trouble with the handle wrapping. To me every other part of the sword is to my satisfaction except the handle wrapping. Since I didnt have the correct colour handle wrap I couldnt use hockey tape which I was familiar with. So I had to try and use the ribbon handle wrapping. Now I spent hours trying to work out how to do it, the ribbon being very weak didnt help atall. Until I worked out how to do it through hardwork the secret is you have to make sure the knots are really, really tight. I mean close to breaking point tight, only when the handle wrap is really tight will the handle look clean. Since this is my first time using it, it isnt going to be perfect but I will improve!!
