Hi guys, some time ago I finished my own custom made Highlander I Katana.
I skulpted the dragon tail and head over a cast from an very old Marto hilt, made resin casts of this and equiped it with a live blade. I was heavily inspired by Jose DeBragas fantastic work as you can see.
The tsuba and the screw are made from solid bronze. The sword can be taken apart for cleaning or repairs. How do you like it?
(Some pics were taken in the wip phase with the screw still missing and the tsuba not polished)

This looks awesome, great job! I was just checking out images of the actual prop and you really did do a good job of blending in your own style
