So I am usually not the type to try and find somewhere to buy something and I usually just make them, but my situation won't allow me to build my own zanpakuto. So I am left wondering where is a fairly good reliable source for getting a zanpakuto? I have sent a couple commissioners emails about getting it done, but I want to keep my options open to anything else that might be out there. So if anyone has any suggestions on this please let me know.
Ideally I am looking for the Shikai release of Jushiro Ukitake's zanpakuto, but even just the standard one is great. I can find Rukia's shikai, Ichigo's various forms, and a handful of others standard zanpakuto here and there.
I have learned how to wrap the tsuka (handle) myself so I could always just buy one of the zanpakuto I have found and re-wrap the tsuke to what I'd need.
I used http://www.karatejoes.com/Bokken-wit...rd_p_6102.html to make my zanpakuto for Hiyori. It's a drawing practice sword so it comes with the scabbard and has a magnet that keeps it from just falling out. You can see in it my gallery (maybe i should add more than one picture of it.) I used rustoleum black primer, bright silver for the blade (it got a reflective finish as you can see, ppl at con loved it) and bronze for the handguard detailed with acrilic paints. once i get a chance to use a saw (i have no power tools at all) i'll make the hand guard rectangular like it's suppose to be.
Hope this helps.
