    Oh, and for clarification, the handle is not glued on, that is why you see gaps. It is hammer fit, and when i fill'er up with epoxy, it will be hammered into place all nice and tight like :)

    That was the hope lol. I am forging out some saya chisels, and will mill it out mostly, then use the chisels. Have some cool plans for the saya as well ;)

    Good engraving Mike!
    Maybe instead of a makers mark, we will start seeing the Davis Dragon on your blades?

    Thanks guys :) still pitting thoughts together on the saya. I am leaning toward either redwood or a walnut and quite possible some design aspects of the knife flowing into the saya...

    I think the saya should have just a branch, similar to the one on the knife. But just a different season. Like early winter, with more leaves and some snow. Or late winter with no leaves (kinda boring if you ask me).
