Drawing a Basic Katana Design by chioky Drawing a Basic Katana Design by chioky
Hmm this time I have decided to make a different layout for a tutorial, instead of just a collage of pictures and the discriptions of each stage in the discription box XD. Is it easier to understand? Does the layout seem more appealing? if you could answer those it would be great XD.

Since most of the talking is done in the deviation I will just say use this tutorial to draw a perfect katana design onto a piece of wood ready to be made. Its in my Swordmaking Guide Advances skills however it was not as detailed as I wanted to so I made it stand alone and more detailed ^^

sup every1. chioky just want 2 no if you want 2 make the blade longer, say.. 50inches, would you have to increase the length of the handle as well. if so then by how much? thx

chioky Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2008  Student Artisan Crafter

Oh, this came in need! I was going to buy real one in this week (well, maybe not that real, but it had real blade. It was designed to roleplayers), but then I noticed, that it was kinda heavy and I can't hang out with it in public places. Con's guards or police will not like it, I guess.
And that weight...Hamaka's "belt" (don't know the correct word if it has one) will be not able to hold up it.
So, this is helpful tutorial.
Thank you.

A pvc pipe is plastic piping you can use for draining lol, a square dowel is a long wooden stick of wood with the shape of a cuboid

I hope you use my swordmaking tutorials well enough and I wish you goodluck ^^

Thank You so much I think this tutorial will help many in doing wood-weapons.
Just now it is again interesting to know some tricks in saw the thing out :-) Did you used a 0.5 cm thick piece or you use the 2 cm thick of the grip one and cut/sandpaper down the blade. Maybe you pointed that out in the tut but I read it fast so maybe I overlooked some things :-)

This should help a little.

So Chioky mah boy, you say square dowel works in place of a PVC tube?
Reply
:iconchioky:
chioky Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2008  Student Artisan Crafter
Yes it does its much easier to draw the curved line with a pencil unlike a PVC Pipe Tube becuase it is a cylinder. However a wooden dowel will snap XD
