    Just finished another one. This is Will's 200 mm "Red Shark" gyuto in figured redwood. Interestingly, this one turned out to be more difficult than expected. The redwood is soft enough that I had some problems with tear-out while dealing with the figures. It was slow going.

    Sorry for bringing this thread back from the dead, but ejd53, if you can share your process of how you made these, I think it would be very helpful to myself and others who might get inspired to try it themselves.

    I actually made a saya with walnut wood and a dremel. It's not as clean as yours, but glue-time aside, really only took me about an hour. I just routed out the shape of the blade on two planks of wood and sandwiched them.

    Also, where did you procure some of the rarer woods you've used (bloodwood, cocobolo, etc.)?

    You can purchase Bloodwood and cocobolo at woodcraft, and a few other nice exotics.

    Great looking sayas!
