Sword Haircut

About three years ago I chopped off my hair with a tanto.  For research.  And fun. To help other writers who might need to include this in their stories, I recorded the process. 

This past summer I repeated the exercise with a slightly different technique and a freshly sharpened sword  (it’s classified as a large tanto or a small wakizashi).

Welcome

I’ve been meaning to set up my website for months.  I had one in the distant past (when I had to actually learn HTML), but wasn’t good at updating it, so it did more harm than good.  Times have changed, and I’ve been blogging over on Tumblr for a few years, so it was clearly time to start again.

I try to keep things organized, so as I port things over from my other blog there will be a clear structure, and heavy use of tags and categories.

I’m friendly, so please feel free to contact me if you have a question!
