We're going methodically through all our sayas an publishing the specs on the opening so people can have a fighting chance when they buy a saya they already own. It's challenging selling these since so many makers don't offer them and that means we have to scramble to fit sayas to the knives we sell but we're committed to offering them. Our customers like them and they sell well.

If you have the proper tools it's not that bad, however for the $30 I'd just buy one, unless I was making one out of some really nice wood.

I make my own. It can be as simple as cutting and routing two pieces of wood, gluing them together and finishing. I can say based on personal experience that designing the better saya has been for me the kind of exercise in overthinking that would make Rube Goldberg and Wile E. Coyote laugh out loud. Half the battle is finding wood worth using. Tricky part is if you want to match the wood to the handle. If you live in the Baltimore/DC area you can go to Freestate Timbers with your knife and the guy there can do a decent job of getting you a match if you know what you will be curing it with. Tools can be an issue. I've made them with everything from a Dremel to chisels and hand saws to a professional routing table and scroll saw. If you have the room and don't mind the expense, it goes a lot faster with professional tools. Even better if you know someone that has such tools and can be bribed to share them.

I did a saya WIP in my forum using a 3 piece sandwich method, a bit easier than routing, esp for thinner blades.
