Creating a koshirae, from tosogu (metal trim) provided by the owner of the blade. He was also asked to do a touch up on polishing the blade on the Shiage (second part of the work or finish). An option has been added: making a "tsuba" (or rather a big thick Seppa) in black buffalo horn, inspired by the frame Aïkuchi (unguarded) that can replace the metal tsuba. Finally, making a tsunagi (replica of the blade magnolia), to maintain the existing two frames together.
Materials used: Magnolia, black buffalo horn, lacquer Urushi and charcoal powder, yoshino gami, suede leather, Samé (ray skin), urushi red ox blood, bamboo, mulberry paper.
