    first saya...for hiro

    Hey all,
    With members' insight, i recently bought a Hiro AS for my Father in law's birthday. I think it was the right choice. i'm quite pleased . And, because I hadn't made a handle in a while, i was half hoping that the f&f on it would be poor. Since it was actually pretty good, i decided to make a saya for it instead. He doesn't have adequate knife storage, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to try my hand at it. He's getting it tomorrow. I'm pretty sure wood is padauk (holy splinters!...). pin is walnut

    what a beaut, the tied on pin is a great idea. Where are the work in progress photos!!?? Seeing this makes me want to blow a ton of money at harbor freight on tools.
