:bulletblue: Blade Length: 50 inches

This sword is handmade with no power tools (except a drill) out of strip pine wood and its full tang. My original plan was to remake my first tensa zangetsu becuase on close inspection it looked poorly made. However when i saw Hollow Ichigo's white tensa zangetsu I thought "wait thats a white tensa zangetsu, I could have both the black and white one O.O".

Firstly I did the stuff I couldnt do before, I made the blade curved. Cutting the curve was hard making it smooth even harder. The next I add the outside rim details in the guard. I used alot of balsa wood to try and all the details proportional. I got this chain which was the right size and was already white AND was plastic. So with a plastic chain it wont wrap my knuckles and I could hot glue gun half a chain link to the end.

The sword I gotta say is fabulous just one thing I want to ask. The blade part is a little wave on the sharp edge and when you look it from the hilt and look down the blade it waves some more. I'm guessing either it was how the wood was or the clamps were a little too tight. But other than that small detail the sword it great. Another question I have is do you make sheaths for the swords?
OMG! I love this sword (and Hollow Ichigo <3) great job
