    But more seriously I suggest keeping the saya relatively coordinated with the knife.

    Rosewood is amazing. Here are a few pictures of some of the scale sets that will be used on the HHH 240mm Gyutos.

    OK. Im gona offer a few sets of rosewood Saya wood. Im thinking a 10.5 X 2.5 X 1/8" book matched slabs. The pictures above are a GREAT representation and these saya slabs will come from the same block of rosewood as these scales did!

    So, the blade on these knives will be 240mm tip to heel. and approx 50mm wide at the heel. Is this size adequate?

    I would do 2.75 inches just to be safe. Also what is the spine thickness at its widest point? I will almost definitely be taking you up on this.

    2.5mm is the spine thickness

    I should be able to do 2.75. width.

    OK so I got 1 almost for sure.

    I think I have enough extra material large enough for these to make 7 to 10 sets. So lets try and start a list.

    32.50 a set + shipping and because I only have a limited amount. one set per person until everyone who would like a set gets a set. Then if there are some left your welcome to a second or even third set.

    This is gona be too cool!
    God Bless
