Made some sayas today
One for 270mm Kato out of Japanese Ho wood
other one is poplar Burl for Shigefusa Usuba
Iphone pics :O
very sweet maxim.. I was unaware that you made sayas!
Poplar is stunning
I decided from now to Make sayas only in soft woods. As i noticed that even so i use only chisels to make the hole it still somehow can scratch your knife :( Or make some marks
It is also much easier to make friction fit with softer wood. So i will only make them in softer woods now Poplar, Ho wood, Kauri etc
It is not like i have to much time to making them so my prices will be bit high. But i have many that just neeeed Saya no madder what hehehe
So thats why i will offer them sometimes
Very nice, Maksim!
Good clean work.
I like them.
If you're using ancient kauri, that can have very hard minerals in it, so be careful as it could cause scratching. It is known to dull tools quickly.
I do not use ancient kauri :D I think it is to hard too
Finish them of with some ironwood pins :D
Devil is in the details
