    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

    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.

    The grain really pops after you finished it. Looks great.
