Some time ago my grandson asked me to make for the your birthday japanese sword bokken. The long time I looked for the working drawings or patterns of the japanese swords different types. As a result I decided to make the commplete set of japanese sword including bokken, tanto and stand. I maded the short bokken wakizashi bo because as my grandson is young in years . I need wooden pieces with impact strenght, resistence and not too heavy weight. I maded complete for purpleheart and beech, wedges for walnut. The inscription “Bushido” ( the way of the warrior) on the japanese hieroglyphs I maded with mapple inlays. This inlay is my first experience of inlay. It was found that is not simple. I hope for my grandson likes it.
