i was wondering if a 1 cm thick kurikata would held up well on a saya i've seen 1.2 cm thick ones but never seen a 1 cm thick...

any hint about this would be appreciated.

oh and by the way it would be nice to know this in a historical context too!

Etienne -
Do you have a photo? It is hard to imagine your problem with the details provided? Thick how? 1cm from top to bottom? 1 cm across? 1cm thickness above the opening for the sageo?

just to update a little i planned on buying this a while ago and wanted to know if it was thick enough to make a kurigata http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thick-Flat-Dark ... 588bc73fc3

i think i will practice on poplar first since horn is a little more expensive than poplar. (i know it is not traditional but it's the best i can get to practice kurigata shapes)

Hi Etienne, I've found http://www.highlandhorn.com/ to be very helpful. They have a large range of buffalo horn, not sure how much the shipping would be to your part of the world though.

Regards, Graham.

sorry for the late reply, do they have some horn plates of over 10mm thick? i can't seem to find anything about horn plates or maybe i should begin with a whole horn and make what i want to make with this??? since i don't have any knowledge and tools to work these properly i was researching for plates but if it is my only choice i will have to do this the hard way.
