Here are three sets of koshirae that I recently finished. 

The first is a Shinto naginata zukiri wakizashi (early 1700’s) that I did in Jabara-ito using 8 ivory colored silk threads; the saya was sculpted with ripples, and finished using black urishi. 

The second two are the long sword and short sword from a Koto Bizen daisho (matched set from the mid-1500’s)  I did using white silk ito; the saya (scabbard) was finished with a combination of mother-or-pearl chips in black urishi. I made both the tsuka (handles) and saya (scabbards) on all three. Let me know what you think…

Below, the Shinto nagainata zukiri wakizashi:

And here is the Koto Bizen daisho (matched set from the Bizen school):
