The copper will hopefully add a little bit of weight to the centre of the knife.
Here is the wa after about 30 minutes of sanding on the belt sander.
For the saya I found some pieces of Eastern maple from an old pallet. It had a little section of interesting grain so I planed it with the thickness planer.

For this knife I used the KN12 pattern, which is an 8" gyuto wa. I glued the printed paper on to a piece of 1/4" plywood with carpenter's glue.
