    Pretty saya in the middle! stunning job with those handles. how do you keep the bevels straight? does that necessitate a jig?

    No, no jig. I shape it on a grinder, free hand. Having made dozens of these helps, but I always look for ways to improve.

    Received my Shig with the new saya... Your pictures don't do it justice!

    It exceeds my expectations in every way. You truly are a perfectionist and it shows.

    Thank you. That's a music to my ear (that it exceeded your expectation). Just as a reminder, use the saya for transportation only. Shiges need a watchful eye over them (unless your build a patina).

    Just julienne about 50# of onions, that seemed to work for developing my Shig's patina
