    Why not use a piece of chopstick, like Son suggested? Or a long metal rivet from a hardware store...or, well just about anything that will fit?
    Earlier in this thread, I thought I read "Needs more cowbell" and I just about wet myself.

    No, you can make them of horn too.

    The trick about pins is that for a good fit, you need to match the pin hole diameter to a pin size.

    i don't really whittle very well, which is why i would need so much cowbell, because most would be wasted, and i want it to look "right."

    i've gotten around that in the past by kind of creating a resinated tape from wood glue and masking tape, adding layers to the saya pin until it's slightly too large, and then sanding down to size. a quick hit with a sharpie and it looks fine. that's probably about as much work as just whittling one, though.

    Personally, I like copper wire - #14 works best. Matches my collection of tinned copper pans and bends to securely hold saya in place. Very classy.
