    Let's see your DIY sayas

    Here are mine. None of them made by me. All for 270 gyutos. The far right one is probably the best I've seen, with the cork in the end to protect the tip. So let's see yours. I am curious as to how complicated they can get

    Do you guys ever notice dulling with sayas like these? I was using one out of cardstock and I always found the bite out of the edge was gone when using it - maybe my wire edge was really bad or something.

    thanks Tom, that one's for my Carter

    Don, I sure hope they dull them a bit, as a home cook it's hard to get enough use among my knives (those shown plus my Sab's) to have to sharpen enough to stay any good at it...and like most people here I really enjoy very sharp knives.
