Well after getting a few saya and seeing a couple other people make them, I figured Why Not??
Did these 2 earlier in the week:
First two: 210mm on the top in Cherry/Padauk spacer, bottom is for a 240 gyuto in Bolivian Rosewood and Padauk spacer. The 240 was my first and I goofed up the part where the bolster inserts into the saya and made it too far back, so on the 240, the bolster doesn't go into the saya like it should. But it does fit a 210 correctly!
What I did today! 240mm gyuto with Bocote and Bloodwood spacer, 210mm gyuto with Lacewood and Bloodwood spacer, and a small 150mm petty with Bloodwood and Padauk spacer. I actually used the left over pieces that I cut out of the spacer layer for this one. The Bloodwood looks kinda cool I think! I finished these to only 400 grit and then Tru Oil and Tung Oil finish on them.
I did the 240 and 210mm a bit larger overall than usual so I could use them on a variety of knives. I had gotten some saya's for 210mm gyuto's and most of my gyuto's were just a tad tall to fit into them. Same with the 240; this one will fit my Kikuichi 240mm carbon elite, Artifex 240 and my Tanaka Sekiso 240mm (but it doesn't go in far enough to use a pin.
Just the Saya:
I ordered up a few pieces of 5" wide Curly Maple and 3" wide Bolivian Rosewood (that's my favorite so far!), as well as Bass Wood for the spacers. But for now, I am out of wood again for sayas
