Rivers of Blood
A Katana fit for the deadliest of Tarnished.
After the success of my Moonveil release, I knew that folks would be itching to complete their IRL dual wield katana builds. In between helmet commissions I found a day to stretch my sculpting muscles and I fired up Blender to construct a Katana worthy of the Okina, swordsman of the Land of Reeds
"Build your own Katana"
The entire blade comes out to around 5ft. If that sounds big, what do you expect, its a FromSoftware game.
The blade is comprised of 6 pieces and are all designed to fit over a series of identical oval shaped alignment pegs. This ensures that all the pieces can be easily and perfectly oriented when you glue/weld the blade segments together. There is a large central peg that you can fit the blade, hilt, and handle on top of. Additionally, there are a couple options for the handle. There is an option without the cordage wrapping in the STL file for those who want to wrap the handle themselves. For those who dont want to bother with that, there is an option with the pattern already modeled into the handle. Lastly, you can print the handles in two halves for those with shorter print volumes.
The pommel fits over the bottom of the handle.
I have not had the time to build this Katana myself as I am currently busy with a whole backlog of design commissions for helmets/props.
If you have a personal build and would like some recognition, go ahead and send me some pics!
If you are looking to create you own models like this one feel free to checkout all of my tutorials on 3D modeling and prop making techniques.
If you are looking to purchase the model so that you can print your own you can find it in the store.
Lastly, make sure to check back in every once in a while to see what I've been working on
Thank you for your time
