How Ebay Samurai Swords get Made in China - An Inside Look at Sword Making Part Four
In part four of the "how samurai swords for sale on ebay get made" series, I am going to focus on saya making. I know the owners of several of the factories making saya, and took pictures in a few different ones. Factory is a pretty lose term, as these places have 3-4 employees. As was shown in part one, the dealers will actually wrap the saya themselves.
First up is a look at some of the Ronin dojo pro saya getting made. The brown horn is already attached, and they are about to be taped up, and have the lacquer applied.
