Here are a couple blades that I just heat treated. Most of these are for orders. I have a couple spares in there as well. Thanks for looking.

Let me know if you want any specs. Going to do some hilt shots soon.

Awesome! Is #9 from the top mine? I'm horrible at judging size. #6 is the other leafblade looking piece but it looks like its larger.

Really liking #1 and #8 from the top. Thanks for posting these. It's always nice to see in-progress shots.

I find the two handed proportion one with the long ricasso interesting. Is it a fantasy sword, or based on a historical type?

Third up from the bottom is not spoken for and the damascus shobu is also not.

John, I have to say, I love your work. The finished product has a look all its own that's unique and speaks of quality. I can distinguish one of your pieces from across a room and I can't say that about every custom smith out there.
