    I did. Both handle and saya came from the same piece of wood. However, wood for handle wasn't stabilized, but even with minimum treatment, it has held pretty well. Stabilizing will darken wood.

    Really amazing work. Even my wife who takes absolutely no interest in this forum said, "Wow, that's beautiful!"

    I've been doing this, too. Looks like crap, but it works. I guess I need to upgrade from green painters tape to duct tape, though. Adds strength and that faux damascus shine to your "saya".

    I use clear shipping tape, and use a black marker to simulate ebony on the cardboard.

    My first thought when I read cardboard saya was using marker to make a DT feather Damascus cardboard saya

    You could color some squiggly lines in crayon when use the marker or water color to simulate burl.
