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!

They are on the block soon! Debating some handle options. May do some Silky Oak or Black Casara, or maple burl.

Great work as usual. I like the idea of the saya matching the handle. These are artfistic function in action. Beautiful. We have the beautiful weather down here in Arizona, but nothing close to your skill and artistry!

Love the work as always Tim. Can't wait to get moved up to CO in the next couple weeks and get some room setup in the garage for working on a couple rehandles. Nothing like your work, but gotta start somewhere.

That sujihiki with saya's absolutely beautiful. I'm not normally one for considering aesthetics, but sheesh.
