Here is my first saya on my Ealy. It is Bolivian rosewood.
Here is my first attempt at a Wa handle on my Yoshikane. It is Bethlehem olive wood with Redwood burl. I tend to like bigger handles, but this is a little too big. It would have been perfect for a cleaver. I am probably going to make a 2nd attempt for this knife. The marks of the handle are from rubber bands that I am using to hold its old saya on before I make a new one. Wish I had noticed them before i took the pictures.
Those may be basswood spacers, but don't tell anybody
