i'm not really a real artist like mr. ford hallam but i did a little finishing on a tsuba blank i bought about a year and a half ago i will post some pictures of it maybe tomorrow if i have time.

about a year ago i was angry about something but i don't remember why but all i remember is that i took my hammer and hammered my tsuba until i had no more strenght left in both of my arms and after that i let it rust about a year and now i just finished applying the finish on it but i don't know if i should put it on my sword because i'm not too sure about the overall look it would bring to the sword that's why i will take some pictures for you all.

i applied some wax to seal everything because that's all i had at hand and my steel became a little more blue (because of the wax's color) i will try to rub it a little more to remove every exess.

is there any precedent to a hammered finish and when i mean hammered i mean hammered A LOT!

i might try my hand at a tsuba when i have the money to do it.

again i'm sorry if it is not made traditionally but i think any experience can worth it and by training i can only be better right?

Hammered plate is quite common, nobeita, and is found in many schools. John
