Brown Saya wakizashi

Hello Budo friends,

here is something new, for all who knows that saya was not always black, coloring Saya is a special kind of craftsmanship. There is many colors, patterns and decorations of saya, I will try to apply some of them on my bokkens.

Kodachi with Jabara ito tsukamaki and menuki

This kodachi was made in May 2016, but sens I was to busy posting this now as sample of something new.

It have dark green (not original) jabara ito tsukamaki without "tome" (final knot on the end of tsuka), reason, it was just prototype, until I learn to work with jabaraito :)

Kodachi is made from hornbeam wood with plastic saya and black cotton sageo, it have menuki from real branch to folow idea, wooden sword wooden menuki.
