    Couple of new sayas...

    First is Yosh yanagi in nicely figured birdseye maple; couldn't catch a very good photo, sorry.

    Next is a Shig wearing chakte viga; my favorite wood thus far, except for the fact it filled my shop up with smoke.

    Both had very thick spines at the handle, hence the angled openings. No need for pins...

    Really liking # 1. How long does it take you to put one of these together?

    Thanks everyone. I'll try and capture a better angle in the morning.

    I would say if I'm doing one, it takes about an hour in all, but I can do two in about an hour and half, etc...so the more I do at a time, the quicker I get them done.

    So I took this at work, not a good pic at all, but you can get some idea of the wood figure. The shimmer doesn't show...
