    Regular katanas






    And a pic of my close to finished Ninja with his sword set. Also for size comp.

    Very nice work. I'd have never thought of using rake tines for swords.

    i actually managed to find some black floral tape on ebay....

    the stuff works really well for simulating a leather wrap in 1:6 it actually ends up looking more like leather than real leather does.

    Beautiful sword-crafting, Storm. You might test a tine by heating it in a small torch frame, then dropping it in a metal pan with some motor oil in it (outside and away from flammables, and remember safety glasses and gloves).

    An alternative is cold blacking - http://www.finishing.com/faqs/blackoxide.html
    There's kits available, you can google a bunch of results.
