    yeah GLA-58, i am not exactly the sushi lover either, have always managed to promised my wife that we would go and have some on her birthday, but somehow always managed to evade it too. as far a japanese dusciplin is concerned though, we europeans could do with a bit of it and i lve the samurai honorable way of life even though some of it is hard to understand. i dont particularly agre that they still are hunting whales, but in my mod i am only honoring the samurai way of life which i envy. times have changed and just like we used to have honor among thieves, i am sure the samurai culture is also compromised and adjusted to the modern cold world. in my mod THE SAMURAI SACRILEGIUM, i hope i could show the elements and the culture of the samuria we all like to believe in and admire. dont forget guys, its just a computer, but as i like to believe, its a computer with a soul, just like my creations. I hope you all see the work i am putting into it to metamorphise the samuria into its sacrilegium. more to come.:rock:

    hi everyone, i didnt manage much today, have been working a bit on the bokken. the hand guard is fixed now and i fixed in the skull which i had from halloween. its just fixed with epoxy o far and after i have done some carving work you will see what i have planned for it.
    the bokken blade curve has turned out just right.

    hi kelmannen, sorry i missed your post here. the bokken-sword will not have a cable.
    the handgrip behind the hand guard has a split part as you can see in the pics.
    i have glued in an USB port from an old mainboard as clip to grasp the USB KEY inside the grip part. the KEY which has the skullglued to it is so detachable and the KEY for itself. its so a part of the two hand sword grip.
    in other words, i take out the USB KEY from the grip and stick it into the SAMURAI casecon, well as soon as i have built in the USB ports.

    so shortly saying, after this SAMURAI has robbed you if your life, he will rob your PC of your data
    too. a very state of the art modern guy eh..:D
    i do nevertheless have a little surprise coming too as far as the BOKKEN is concerned.:thumb:

    I thought you were making a Wii sword. Nothing teaches sword control better than the fear of hurting yourself and maybe damaging furniture. -Still awesome.:D

    :D in my dojo it is not the fear of hurting oneself. but the fear of hurtinn another person without intent.

    :eyebrow:If one does cut himself he is politely being asked to commit seppuku !! :eyebrow: :sigh:

    hi guys, i finally managed to get down to an update for the SAMURAI SACRLIEGIUM again. i know its not much, but as i am actaully as good as finished with the REPTO-AM-PI-BICUS, i can carry on here.
    did a part of the bokken handgrip carving and wrote SAMURAI in japanese on the bokken, well according to google trabslator at least, i hope its right. the letter look japanese at least.
    i am sure some of you have asked why it has a skull in the concept, well the name is
    SAMURAI SACRILEGIUM and the word SACRILEGIUM will soon be eyplained through its progres to come, its all part of the concept.

    hi ferret141, it was actually just the letters in english s.a.m.u.r.a.i. and the japanese letters in google translator. i know it might be wrong but it looks good:D
