The tsuba returns

From time to time I do oddities for other people. I lasered up this foam tsuba to go into a LARP weapon and last week I finally managed to track down the results and the completed sword.

I kept the new pace up relatively well so I was a bit disappointed when I discovered the project finished a week sooner than I thought it did. I actually made 5 out of the 6 remaining items in that final week and I genuinely think some of it was my best stuff . My favou
