Are you planning on making 5 more out of the backup planks you have? That way, you could make an awesome fight scene with friends, and then post it here to show the awesomeness.
Also, are you planning on painting it to make it look like a real katana, or are you keeping just plain wood, or maybe stain it?
Actually the remaining planks were like backup if I screwed this one up, but its going so well so far that I might consider that.
And yes, Im painting the blade with metallic grey or silver and the handle black. Im going to talk with a shoemaker near my place to see if I can get my hands on some black leather strips for the grip.
