Here is one of the many promised tutorials, the Sageo. I know the file is enormous, but I wanted to be sure it was clear. Any suggestions for editing would be very appreciated. Early apology to 56kers, I'm terribly sorry.
So yeah, I hope this helps people out, it really adds to a katana. Let me know if there is any trouble understanding either picture or text. If you find this helpful, please link back so that others may find/use this too. Let me know what you're working on too, I'd like to see it!
And since this is the second to last thing I do on a sword, maybe you're asking yourself what is around the corner?
