New Saya for Shigefusa Kitaeji Santoku 200 mm
Made this one for a customer :) Burned it a bit to match the handle of burned chestnut.
And brass pin, saya is made of some old unknown wood i have. Quite hard, probably old teek.

good job Maksim

mb could be better if you put some red shades on the handle )

Handle is stock, burn chestnut. Not made by me

Nice job, Maksim. Handle and saya look good together.

Looks great, Maksim. The brass pin goes well with the line between ferrule and burnt on the handle.

Thanks all !!! I am still quite newbie to this :)
With the new chisel it will make things much easier

Agreed, I like that you took a creative gamble here...very nice!

Looks a lot better than my first foray into making a saya. Lets just say the cardboard picked up some bad stuff at work.:cheffry:
Btw the line from the handle through the saya is very eye catching.
