Pierre, the only thing I'm laughing about is your very high standards. That saya has nothing about it to laugh about.... sheeesh
Very beautiful saya.
Pierre, it's nice but you can do much better. It's very nice!!!
I thought it was thuya burl at first.
I also like the "logical" approach, I made my first handle out of snakewood and my first wa out of ancient kauri and blackwood. I have never made a saya, but I know since a long time that it will be made out of redwood.
I wait for the finished picture with the knife. Thanks
