    Finally carved a little time to work on this project. Below is a production prototype. Quality-wise it's a second - there are a couple of things that I need to do differently and to improve upon. I will incorporate these changes in the next one and hopefully start working on the production sheaths after that.

    The fit is tight, so I made this one without a leather strap, but might do that in the production version.

    Marko. I have a DT ITK 240 (recent run) and a 255 Rodrigue gyuto in need of some blade covers. Do you have time to take on any projects?

    I have a number of leather saya orders for DT gyutos, so these will need to be completed before I can take any additional orders. Given that I will be preparing for Seattle show in April and be out of the country for a couple of weeks in May, the earliest I could possibly do would be June-July.
