This build log is mainly to serve as public notice that I will be making and there for carying around a katana on site.
This katana is more of a backyard mash up, rather than a traditionaly made katana, as obviously stated by it being made out of a large tent pike.
I hope to start sharpening it tomorrow, with a deep narrow blade.
If people are concerned or interested, swords are legal to buy, sell and make in Qld. Just call weapons licencing qld to find out first hand. The only real provision is that the owner of the sword does nothing unusual or threatening with it. E.g. practicing kenjutsu in the quad.
