    OK 1st saya down!

    So I said to myself, for my first try I'll make a Sakimaru Takobiki saya. lol The knife did need one though. I was using a makeshift saya made from fish tub plastic, electrical tape and sticker backed black felt. This one is made from walnut that I scored from Mark at Burl Source.

    It's not perfect and don't ask me to show you the inside either! I learned a few things along the way and definitely need some better tools. Chisels, rasps and files please. Anyway, I'm happy with it and it's the 1st one down.

    Not bad. You should have seen my first saya.

    Thanks all but I have the luxury of going second if you will. The road has been paved already, I'm just starting out on it. I do think that if I had a few more hand tools, a 6" belt grinder, a 9" disk and a scroll saw I could really start to turn out some nicer stuff. More efficiently too. One thing at a time though. The Charger needs an Eibach sport suspension kit this summer.
