A few sayas

Fri Dec 20, 2013 6:32 pm

Here are a few sayas I made. They have gotten some use, so slightly beat up a bit. This first one is cherry for a massakage kioshi petty. I used the coin to trim out the pin hole and attached a thin nylon cord to keep the pin with the saya.

The second one is for a moritaka honesuki and is made from Wenge.

The last one is for a konosuke hd 210 and is made of zebra wood .

Thanks Jeff. I enjoy making things. A few details the photos don't really show well, the thickness are adjusted to equal the thickness of the handle so they lay flat in the drawer and don't wobble or slide around. The edges are routered to mimick the blade, rounded spine and chamfered edge. You can see this on the honesuki. Except the spine of the honesuki is left flat, because that's how the blade inside is.
