Here is another way of doing a nobori. If you scale it down, you can do a sashimono. Scale it up and you can do an uma-jirushi.

You need three different sizes of bamboo, that can fit into each other.

Well, I finished the Nobori and I used this in a Knife-Show (the most importand of Argentina) in which I presented the swords that I built
Upload photos so you can see how it looks. Thank you very much to everyone who helped me.

Very well done, Eduardo.

The banner looks very Japanese. Specially with the advertisement at the lower half, it would blend in in today's Japanese festivals. Smile

The name of this Katana is "aratameshi", in relation to a ancient Japanese test using them for checking swords.
In the Bakumatsu period, the practice of Aratameshi was developed.
The obvious difference between Aratameshi and Tameshigiri is that cadavers were not used in this new form of sword testing.
The final method of the basic form of Aratameshi utilized water for testing (the basic Aratameshi form has four tests).
A kind of pool was filled with water and then the sides of the blade being tested were stuck against the water surface flatly.
This was done to reveal how well the blade could handle a severe impact. A blade could break during this test if it was not well made. The blade is made of W1 (Boeller k990) steel. Temperate in the traditional way of tempering clay (the images 1º and 2º it's a tanto with clay).
The theme of the katana is flowers. The fuchi and kashira is made of patinated copper with silver and gold flowers.
The Tsuba is made of wrought iron with red acid patina
The saya is made of kiri wood and the finish is with a Eggshell decoration technique called "rankaku": the traditional urushi (lacquer) Japanese art which has fascinated
the Western world for centuries but whose secret is still jealously guarded, and won a prize in the blade show!!
the tsukaito is silk imported from Japan. The Same is imported fron Japan too
and it was sold in the Blade Show at a price of 1578 dollars.
thanks for watching and sorry for my poor english


















Here in this link you can see the blade of this sword doing the Aratameshi test
