Well I broke my katana today (full tang my ass) but the blade held up admirably, and was sharp enough to cut a chunk out of my arm. ANYWAY I want to lop of the blade at the start of it's full width and move the grip panels up farther to make an actually full tanged wakazashi So does anyone know how to drive out the rivits in a knife handle? And where to get replacements? Maybe I could use threaded rod get it together and then add a wire wrap and maybe a clamp? I think the rivits are brass On a side note, got some cheap grey hair dye and some really cheap diet energy drink! Hooray for the crinly knots!
