    That was an awesome video I like the katana but wasn't fond of the tsuba or the tsuka but other than that it was an awesome blade.

    I agree. The steel is so traditional & then apply that "stuff" to it. I don't get it, but to each their own. I did enjoy the smithing part of the video for sure!

    I was thinking the same thing. As soon as they started talking about milling the pieces I was shaking my head. Figured if the were going to use that steel and spend that amount of time they could've atleast cast them or even engraved the pieces, but I guess since they had to base it off of a futuristic anime it had to look futuristic.

    They should have used some HC steel from Chernobyl, would have been more fitting to the anime show!
