    So i managed to get a saya done. Tried to match it to the handle as best as possible. It has a handle of stabilized claro walnut, hippo ivory spacer and indonesian ebony ferrule, saya is curly walnut also.
    Dimensions are Blade: 180mm on edge. 50mm tall at the heel 5mm thick. 1095, differentially heat treated to produce a nice hamon.
    Handle : 139mm long, 16/22mm ferrule and 19/26mm butt end.
    Weight is 339 grams.
    Price is $525 plus shipping.
