    Handle& saya

    Hi guys. I want to make matching sayas and handles for petty and nakiri but i cannot decide which part of wood to choose. Can you help me??















    and all elements:




    Please help me to choose. My favourite is picture 4 & 5 but still can't decide. I hope that this will turn ok. It's gonna be my second handle. This is my first. What do you think guys??

    Agree with u on 4 & 5. Like the 1st handle, would have put in a spacer, but I always love those to add some extra contrast to a handle.

    Thanks guys. It is Spalted beech on the ferrule and cap and Thuya in the middle. Unfortunately yesterday i cut first slice for the saya and I have noticed that this block is cracked in many places and that those cracks are very deep and go through hole length of the block I have contacted the seller but even if he will send me new piece it won't be that great

    Really great Job on the 2 handles. As long as you don't offer you goods for sale you should be able to post pictures of your work.
