This is NOT the correct way to make a saya/sheath.
It is a step by step of what I have been doing using the tools I have, figuring things out on my own.
I was hoping that maybe some of the crafts people who know what they are doing might provide their comments or suggestions that would help me to figure out how to do things better.
This is not intended as instructions on how to make a saya
This photo shows the knife with the 2 outer pieces cut 1/4" thick and a spacer piece about 1/8".
To make a pattern I outlined the blade.
Then I drew in the shape for the saya using another saya as a reference for shape. I like the look of the shape but if I use a pin it will have an awkward position so that portion may change shape. Just not sure yet.
I will post more photos as I go along showing what I am doing.
Any comments or suggestions from those who know how to do this are welcomed and appreciated.
