Important Information when you purchase the wooden saya
As you know each Maker’s knife has different dimensions. For example, Hattori’s Gyuto 210m and Misono’s Gyuto 210mm have different blade spine thickness, blade width, dimension even they are same blade type and same length of blade. Because of these slight differences, there might be a possibility that the wooden saya does not fit well with your knife. (Especially most of traditional hammer forged knives have thicker blade spine around the bolster)
Each Wooden Saya is thoroughly hand crafted, so it may vary in size, thickness and interior space. Since it is usually custom made to fit with each knife blade provided, there might be a possibility that the existing Saya you purchase does not fit well with your knife.
In order to avoid this problem, we strongly recommend you to buy the Saya with a knife for the pre-fitting and necessary adjustment.
Also we regret that, due to the high cost of shipping low-priced items, it is not acceptable to order a wooden Saya (Sheath / Scabbard) on its own; To save on shipping costs, please purchase your Saya along with other items that can be shipped together.
At home, I use a magnetic bar to hold my knives. But I like to travel. I'm not a pro so I don't carry a knife roll when I travel. However, I do like to take cooking courses in the cuisine of the country I'm visiting. Having one's own knife makes it so much easier to concentrate on what you're learning rather than wrestle with a dull, poor-quality blade. Also makes staying in an Air B'n'B or other homestay a delight. After you take your cooking course, you can then practice the dish while the recipe and techniques are fresh in your mind. And, since you're in the country of the dish's origin, you can compare your results to the locals' by eating out from time to time, and thereby be prepared to adapt the dish to your available ingredients back home. Short version: It's inexpensive, and lets you take your knife everywhere. Even if you only use it 4 times a year, TOTALLY worth it
Great product with very nice finishing! Worth for every penny!
Bought several sayas for my knives. As always great product, service, and shipping.
Simple, gorgeous, and fit is perfect. It causes me problems when I travel though... If i know I will take a cooking class, I want to bring my own knife!
