View Full Version : Some new handles and sayas

02-24-2014, 11:55 AM
Put some new handles on a few knives over the past couple weeks and made some sayas as well. Wood is black palm with brass and basswood sayas (the kikuichi has copper corbys). The suji is a tojiro with maroon liners and purple heart for the scales and saya.http://i1009.photobucket.com/albums/af220/rdmacey/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00592_zpsdf04b436.jpg (http://s1009.photobucket.com/user/rdmacey/media/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00592_zpsdf04b436.jpg.html)http://i1009.photobucket.com/albums/af220/rdmacey/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00595_zps8652aecb.jpg (http://s1009.photobucket.com/user/rdmacey/media/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00595_zps8652aecb.jpg.html)

Looking slick! Nice work with the sexy curves! How did you end up liking basswood for sayas?

Its working out really well so far. Ive been taking three knives in sayas and an idahone rod to and from work rolled up in a towel every day for the past two weeks and they aren't showing any signs of wear.http://i1009.photobucket.com/albums/af220/rdmacey/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00596_zps927c523a.jpg (http://s1009.photobucket.com/user/rdmacey/media/Kitchen%20Stuff/DSC00596_zps927c523a.jpg.html)

Awesome curves and great fit! How come Tojiro ITK survived rehandling? :)

Ran out of corby bolts but that problem has been solved. Working on a carving fork and the honesuki next.
