Zangetsu Shikai Version 2 by Dark-Capricorn Zangetsu Shikai Version 2 by Dark-Capricorn
This is my second Zangetsu (shikai). I did a much better job on the overall curve of the blade and the handle wrap is much better than the original.

No problem, it's about time someone made a anime accurate zangetsu with the right curves thats not straight, too small, with a dull rounded tip, or isnt wide enough. You really did a Good job on it!!

Its about 9.5 inches wide at the end of the blade, and 5 ft 3 inches long.

Awesome take on Zangetsu, I like how you actually have the pronounced curve that it had at that point in it's life. Well done.

you said you did a better job on the overall curve of the blade. did you use a template or blueprint or something? or did you just eyeball everything?

I paid more attention to how the curve was in the manga/anime the second time around. No template, just eyeballed it. I am actually working on the newer shikai version now.

I think pine. I bought a plank from Home Depot, one with no knots.

It took about 3 days. The first day I cut the wood and did all the sanding. Then I did the painting and had to let it dry between coats. Then I wrapped the hilt. I think its one of the easier ones to make because there is no cross guard and just one long bevel for the blade. I'm working on a Senzbonzakura for my nephew and Ichigo's "final" Tensa Zangetsu now.
