    I think a centered pin would look ace, My vote goes for a light stain and coat on the handle and saya... That burn't look never caught on with me.

    I knew this was gonna turn into another Lucretias lucrative feet post. Anyways... Bought some epoxy, not sure if its the right stuff but its whats gonna get used. At my friends fence shop split the saya in half and one of the eye burls popped out, oh well, im thinking of popping the other one out as well...itll look cool. He just happened to have a planer sitting out and i planed the saya pieces down. Hes a marlboro man type of guy and I had a couple really old zippo lighters on me which needed flint, but I gifted them to him for helping me out, in return he gave me a cool little vice, so now I dont have to pull a Lucretia again!
