Ericka has put up some photos from my birthday party.
Successfully managed to keep all my fingers attached last night in iai as it was the first practice with my new sword. The tsuba has a bit of play in it so I'll probably stick another seppa (washer) between the tsuba and tsuka to tighten it up. The leather wrap feels really good and the menuki are pretty thick so it's a solid grip, and man that blade sings when the cut angle is good. I like it.
