Just finished re handle on Western Yoshikane SLD 240 mm Gyuto
I thought with black KU knife, Dark Bog Oak will fit very nicely with all that teksture and dark patterns :D

I will also make saya for it and it go up for sale in my store :D

Beautiful Knife. Great job matching the handle to the blade.
When you put it up for sale you may want to mention the magical properties of bog oak.

Thank you all :)
I also really like Bog Oak. It is subfossile wood of oak trees, the one i have on that knife is black and should be the oldest you can get 1700 years or more. I really love the texture it have.

How heavy is that bog oak? Does it affect the balance at all?

Are you doing a unique wood saya?

Yes i try to match the saya too, will not be of bog oak, to expensive :scared4:
It is not heavy at all, actually very light wood. So balance is as it was before, on the blade.
