    Default Dozuki sheath

    Hello,
    I just bought a dozuki which seems a beautiful little saw. I decided to make a sheath for it to protect the blade, and based it on one I have fitted to a gent's saw I scored, obviously made by the previous owner.
    Pretty basic but sufficient, it has two sides of 3mm ply glued to a spacer of leather, thick enough to suit the blade. I then drilled and fitted 3 copper roves for reinforcement, and fitted a leather band to secure it, which simply slides away to remove the saw. The trick is a triangular cut-away on one side of the ply to help slide in & out the saw. The leather band is secured by an ingenious little join which I think you can work out, simple but effective and the original fitted to the gent's saw has held up to constant use for 25yrs.
    A folly perhaps but satisfying Now to really use the saw

    Cheers

    Good move Andy. The sheaths that ship with the saws that I have are very inadequate.

    That is such a simple yet clever way to protect saw blades.

    I always have trouble finding something decent to cover my saw blades while in transit or storage. In the past I have bought a hand saw from bunnings or wherever, I would take off semi decent 'clip on' sleeve from one saw then put it on the saw I want to buy (that usually doesnt have it).

    I have also used a garden hose with a slit down the centre, a thin piece of hardwood and cut a kerf into it, and have also just wrapped up saw blades with leather or neoprene until worn.

    Although functional, none have looked remotely as cool as your sleeve.
