Friends,
My new sword has a cephalopod mounted to the grip, and a number of people have remarked on its resemblance to descriptions of Cthulhu. Though still imprisoned beneath the cord wrap, strange and unexplained events are already beginning to occur around the neighborhood... Question

PS: The whole sword, which I'll be using for my wako/Sino-Japanese pirate kit.

Very interesting! Did you cast the Cthulhu menuki yourself or have someone do it for you?

When I first saw this, I thought you meant the sword of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean. Laughing Out Loud

Nice work! I'm not usually a big fan of Asian swords, but I like this one.

Any chance of a close up of the knife that goes with it?

I've tried to get a good picture of the side-knife below. The sword's minimal decoration is mostly ocean waves, apart from the menuki (the cuttlefish and, on the other side, a lobster). These oceanographic design elements further persuaded me to assign this sword to a wako pirate kit.

Jon, my only creative contribution to this sword was finding it on Ebay. But I'm glad to see makers taking up the artistic possibilities of Cthulhu and cephalopods. I've always felt that the tentacles offered attractive possibilities, e.g. as arms for a swept-hilt rapier.
