    Complaints - People have been complaining

    Since the 1st of the year people have been complaining.
    Some of the complaints have come from my regular customers.
    Some of the complaints have come from complete strangers.
    Emails, PMs and even phone calls.

    So......I figured I should change my behavior and stop giving people something to complain about.

    As I have been restocking the web store for the new year, there hasn't been any saya material.
    My Bad, I just hadn't gotten around to cutting any.

    So today I cut some sets that I thought would look good as sayas.
    Mostly Walnut and a Curly Maple set so far.
    I will try to photograph and post these in the store tomorrow.

    I hope you all like this stuff. I thought it was pretty nice.
    It is a bad photo and they are only lightly sanded to 120 grit. They will look better when finished.




    If anyone has any input on what else I should cut up for sayas,
    ...make a post here and let me know.
    Otherwise you will only see stuff that I decide to cut.

    Don't think anybody can complain about this!

    These are beautiful. Can you tell what will be the price for the saya wood?

    I just finished adding the Saya wood to the web store. These walnut sets range from $40 to $50 per set.
    The Maple set is already spoken for but there are still 6 real nice Walnut sets.

    The Walnut is California Claro Walnut. It is a bit softer than normal Black Walnut so it is less likely to scratch your blades.
    The photos only give a hint how nice the wood will look when finished.
    I gave them a light sanding to 120 grit and sprayed them with a light coat of lacquer to give a bit of protection until you start your saya project.

    This link will take you to where they are located in the store.

    Just to make it clear
    The complaints I was getting was a lack of saya wood in the store. Through the coming week I will be adding more.

    I just looked at your order.

    You neglected to leave a gratuity. Guess I better send one of my Ealy blades for a handle.

    Just teasing you.
    The walnut was borderline whether it would make good handle material because the figure was not very compact.
    But spread out over the size of a saya or box it would look real good.
    and..... I got a good deal on it when I bought the wood.
    Thanks Matt
