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.
