New Saya for Shigefusa Kitaeji Santoku 200 mm
Made this one for a customer :) Burned it a bit to match the handle of burned chestnut.
And brass pin, saya is made of some old unknown wood i have. Quite hard, probably old teek.

Nice job, Maksim. Handle and saya look good together.

Looks great, Maksim. The brass pin goes well with the line between ferrule and burnt on the handle.

Looks a lot better than my first foray into making a saya. Lets just say the cardboard picked up some bad stuff at work.:cheffry:
Btw the line from the handle through the saya is very eye catching.
