Stunning Example Of a Hitatsura Hamon
I’s not my taste but definitely a piece of art. A Hitatsura hamon is basically a full tempered blade with spots of tobiyaki (hardening spots in the body of the blade and or along the spine). Posted 2 tanto examples with a hitatsura hamon back in March.

What kind of O-Kissaki should I go for?
My custom project with Walter Sorrells is a shinogi-zukuri blade with an O-Kissaki. However, there are many, many different styles. I love a large kissaki, but how large is too large, and how small can one get while still being considered an O-Kissaki? http://www.summerchild.com/customer/consignL6namb/kissaki.jpg Nice. http://www.albion-swords.com/images/swords/barrett/katana01e.jpg Very big Rick barret Kissaki.
