Well, we had ANOTHER snow storm here yesterday, couple inches only. It looks like the weather is finally getting more normal, 60 degrees outside today, so I was able to get some shed time in! I had a setback last week; I had finished up a 2 saya's and 2 rehandles, only to tweak my wrist and not be able to do any shop or gun work until today.
2 for a forum member. 210mm Masakage Yuki with Faux Horn and Ziricote, Fujiwara FKH with Redwood Burl:
Hutch's Goko with curly maple and curly Walnut:
Wenge Saya for a Sakai Takayuki Ginsan Gyuto. Wenge seems to be a good wood to use if they want something similar to ebony coloring since Ebony is hard to find in thinner pieces, is expensive and is know for cracking/checking over time.
Masakage Mizu 270mm Suji with Buff Horn and Black Palm handle, Black Palm Saya. This one originally had a sweet redwood burl handle, but the customer decided he wanted a new handle to match the saya:
Working on a Nenox double bolster rehandle with Blue maple burl and 5 layer black/white/black/white/black spacer, copper and mosaic pins, saya for a Moritaka Nakiri and a rehandle on a HUGE BIG RHINO CCK...this thing is hilariously big!
