    Guys, I've been busy with life (baby/wife/work/other fun stuff), but I have also been pumping out some cool stuff. Here's a peek at what I've been up to:









    Thought you might wonder if I still do anything....

    Sweet Saya's Tom. So your making Saya's for Rulers there days. Getting ahead of the market huh?

    Awesome, I could use a Saya for my iphone 5, or should I just wait until the 6 comes out?
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    The last one is a project that I'm still working on (finished up the handle this morning). It will have a matching saya, and be more or less cleaned up, with a proper polish on the blade road. Here's another pic:



    I can't tell if the pics are fuzzy or not, but they shouldn't be. Meh.

    Oh, and it's a vintage Masamoto Deba for my boy Jamie. I'll be doing a takobiki of his, as well, to match.

    Thanks. Really like the look as it is now (i.e., unpolished) and with that handle (though its shape makes me wonder how comfortable it is -- but you're the expert). Qhat I'd call somewhat rustic. If Jamie decides he doesn't like it, please ask him to send me a PM. (After Cohen also declines it, I suppose. )

    Tom, your saya skills have just jumped leaps and bounds over this short period of time! Great work my man! Just wish I could squeeze onto your waiting list...

    Sorry about the quality of this picture. The best I could do was a screenshot off my Instagram account. Damn technology!

    Kochi, with McLean Custons Saya:



    Thanks guys.
