Does anybody know of a reliable source for small quantities of ray skin? I need a bit for one grip.

I ordered some a few years ago from swords&more.de, but that's in europe, you might want to hunt some from across the pond.

There are tons of listings on Ebay. If you're doing a Japanese handle, I saw someone selling premade wooden handles, a whole ray skin and an ito as a package deal.

Thanks! I'm doing a small German grip of the early 16th c. Juvenile ray would be perfect.

My local Tandy leather carries a stack of them. I would imagine they are on their website as well.

That does not work since the nakago are all different shapes....
