I am a craftsman and an artist specializing in modern production katana and Iaito. I have been customizing swords and wrapping tsuka for over 10 years and I’ve worked on hundreds of projects in that time. You might know me from the many sword forums, of which I’ve been a member since 2005.
I love working on Japanese style swords and koshirae as well as continuing to learn about the processes, methods, and history of the art. I have been fascinated with tsukamaki since I bought my first katana and proceeded to unwrap the handle, fearing I would never be able to wrap it again. I have since dedicated thousands of hours to learning the craft and still have a lifetime to go! I’ve created many tutorials to share what I’ve learned with those also interested in this amazing art. You can check them out on my tutorial page.
