Very nice work. Great wood too.
Nice - o.k., I say that about anything koa, but I really mean it Are those copper liners?
very nice, love the coper!
why don't you do something about the saya? It's ashame that you've coupled such a beautiful handle with such a sh!tty saya.
I think the saya looks fine. Personally, I prefer plain-looking sayas (but still well made), and have the handles be the star of the show. That's just me.
The koa doesn't have enough curl. I'd send it back.
