After seeing a saya made with a pocket knife I was shamed into finally getting my butt in gear and make one.
I once had a redwood deck behind my house that caught fire. I salvaged some of the wood, and here is a piece of it:

Cool, re-using old materials is something I have been trying to incorporate alot more these days. Looks good :)

That is a wonderful Boardsmith board! I got tired of waiting for my tuit to get around, so I went with a Forum Vendor!

Thanks!
I'll be making them for sale as soon as I burn down another deck!

The BGE was responsible for the last fire!

Too cool, spike. I put scales on my first SAK with wood from the now broken rocking chair we rocked my firstborn in.

BTW, I spotted that for a Boardsmith right off--nobody else patterns the grain like that guy.

NO ChoP!

Thanks! It holds the blade with just the right amount of tension. I got lucky on the fit!
