    My first saya

    Made my first saya today, made of rosewood. Friction fit, a bit tight, and not the best finish but turned out OK. Guess I will have to take on the effort of finally thinning the knife (my mum is using it now )

    The knife is a hiromoto santoku 180mm.

    just finished


    mineral oil


    done

    looks good to me
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    Good job. I have been toying witth the idea of trying to make one. The one I got with my Konosuke HD2 is loose and allowsth knife to shift around too much for my comfort.
