Star Wars Stormtrooper Samurai Katana
Andy Smith who did the Pikachu and Hello Kitty Samurai has a new outfit Stormtrooper Samurai. Because I have so much fun making the katana for them, I again did the katana, here it is. 

Notable features is the fact that it has a scabbard made from plastic pipe . And yes that is a Pez dispenser in the handle.

The Pang Gu Wynne Katana by fixinman
The Pang Gu Wynne Katana
We were cleaning out a house my boss bought and we found a samurai penguin, which I have named Pan Gu Wynne. Under the "We need to do something silly" deparment I am taking him Animethon with me this summer. I decided he had to have a proper katana and here is the result. Fully detailed and on the look out for the evil Stormtrooper samurai.


All wood construction with plastic pipe scabbard.

length 16"
Blade 12"
Balance point 1/2" ahead of the tsuba
Sephiroth's Masamune by fixinman
Sephiroth's Masamune
I was challenged b the people at our local con to prove my skills by making the Masamune from Final Fantasy. Here is all 7'2" of it. And yes the balance is perfect.
In eight days we are off to return to England and this time we plan on doing touristy things and for a bonus we will be arriving the day before the Chelsea Garden Show and a week before the London Horticultural Society Rose Show. Will try to get some art worthy pictures. 

No we have no interest in trying to see the new princess.
