    Paring chisel won't give you much flex. It might work adequately for small knives' sayas, but once you start carving sayas for 240-300mm, you will see the deficiency. Same can be said about all other chisels out there, even the offset ones.

    If you plan on making a few sayas for your knives, buy right tools. It will make your work easier and quality of your work better.

    Thank you for your answer Marko Saya-Nomi seems like the way to go.
    also Marko has post on KF about the saya making. if you search for it .
    The Saya-shi is the scabbard maker who construct the Saya and Tsuka with the material, Ho-no-ki ( Japanese magnolia wood ), which are the products of Japan.

    Ah that makes sense. Yeah, I bet it's rare to see a chisel burn the wood from a 1/2 second pause.

    It's not that much about burning wood, as for being in control how much wood you remove, at which angle etc. I carve sayas with same geometry in the cavity as on the knife, so there is little to no movement inside the saya once a knife is in. I include apin as a extra protection, but often it is not needed.
