Only problem is that it only looks like anything at full size. Nice graphic though.

Very nice icon. Always have been a fan of the hanzo swords (thank you Quentin).

I'll probably add a scabbard and make a close up on the hilt version, but this one at least matches Talos Tsui's set from yesterday

The problem of icons being way too small is a large one throughout the theming community. Here's a way to think of it: An icon functions within a square of adjustable size, but it will always remain a square. If the area the actual graphic takes up within the square is less than 50%, as it is with many icons, the icon is useless if one wants to use it within the dock or on a sensibly sized desktop.

as I said before, this is an extra for this weeks free iconfactory set. Would be a bit silly if I made a sword that didn't match speaking of which...

yes, here it is in the meantime, the symbol on it is okami, which means wolf. This is my personal icon at the moment As I said, I will complete a full set.

As for thin icons being unusable because they are so small... Talos has used a trick we employ here at the factory to make the entire bounding area of the icon clickable. So go ahead and download them. They will be able to be clicked just fine in both the dock and on the desktop.

Don't suppose you can tell me what the trick is, then I won't have to cry with frustration whilst trying to figure it out

[edit:]I figured it out, and I didn't even cry once, ask my mom

This illustrates my idea with the scabbard(saya), the rope on the saya still needs some detail work. Variant will have detail worked into the saya, wth colour changes and metal trim. Will probably add the handle pin to the hilt for the large size one, it'll all but disappear on the smaller.
