This might be hard to believe, but I can't think of who I should contact to get a couple sayas done for my knives. I just got a Marr gyuto, straight from Adam, and it deserves to be wearing something special, as does my Misono Dragon.

I know Eamon used to be the guy, but who do I contact now? I have a few leather workers I deal with, but I'm talking old-school (but upgraded wood) sayas.

Anywho, PM me, or post here, assuming that's cool with the powers that be. :)

same here! looking some one who can be trusted with good craftsmanship like Marko....I've asked Michael Rader & Marko, but they are all too busy making knives. Mike D is busy to taking care his baby right now. Eamon still owe me two saya for 5 month & still waiting........the only person I can think of is Isaiah Schroeder from c*k*t*g

If you want a "sandwich" saya, like Eamon made, there's a fellow named Tim Johnson who makes them. Not a member here, though, so I won't put a link or email addy up. If you are curious enough, you can find him.

I have done few sayas for my own knives and my friends. But again, I'm not a professional, just hobby to fill up my empty time.

Get Son to make you a rat trap saya.

BEST SAYA EVER!

Tom,
you should try your hand at a sandwich-type. Those are not difficult to make with basic tools.

Perhaps he was at one time, but the Member List does not have "taz575" listed as a member currently.

Maybe I only can email it, then somebody just upload it, but I don't know if it's again the law of not in this forum.

Tom....I have seen a handle you did and it was pretty good. I am 100% certain you are capable of the task.

Pretty sure it's fine because you are not trying to sell it.
You can show off you work, afaik.

The thing you're most likely to mess up in a sandwich type is not the outer wood, but the thin piece of wood in the middle you use with the shape of the blade cut out of it. It's probably better to make that out of some soft (and cheap) wood like basswood anyways. Your knife will be fine.

Hi Charles, if you got my pictures, can you please post it? Thanks

Matt, I would do it myself, but I'm lazy. :D Just kidding. Crap...now I know I'm going to end up doing one. Meh, it makes sense I guess. Haha.

Wenus, maybe I'll commission Son to make me one as well. A huge rat trap saya almost sounds awesome!

Nice job!! That looks almost identical to one of those high-end Japanese knife sayas. ^^

If you try to make one identical to original Japanese (Masamoto or Suisin are good examples, in ebony, without a pin), it is. It' s doable, but would require some skill and effort.

That look great kinkoz, I like the kanji touch and the grooves.
Especially awesome for a first time experience.
