Wooden Saya is one of the most common tool and the best method for protecting the blade and storing the knife, when not in use and to go.
The Saya is made of Magnolia wood which has good resistance for water and shrinkage.
Each Wooden Saya is carefully hand crafted to fit with each blade, and comes with Black Pakka wood pin for tightening the blade and wooden saya.

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.
We regret that our current regular shipping methods (DHL, Fedex and EMS International shipping) have high shipping fees, so we are unfortunately unable to accept orders for relatively low-cost accessory items, such as Wooden Saya, on their own. Additionally, due to the COVID-19 situation, Japan Post is not currently allowing customers to use their cost-effective international shipping method, “Postal Small Packet Air Mail shipping method”.
We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience caused by this international shipping situation. To save on shipping costs, please purchase your Saya and accessory items along with a knife / knives, so they can be shipped together.
Love the magnolia saya... Fast shipment
Really happy with this item, it was beautiful made and after some time is still in perfect conditions, recommended!!
Purchasing a new knife from JCK means it will come with a saya or Iwahara-san will find one that fits. This service is a dream come true, especially if you have wasted an inordinate amount of time (and money) trying to even find/buy a saya to adequately fit the knife you purchased elsewhere. Which is probably why you are now reading this. Receiving the correct knife dimensions (drawings, etc), Iwahara-san will most probably find the right solution to spare you plenty of headaches.
Fits well and looks durable.
The saya is great - fits my gyuto perfectly and keeps my knife safe and sharp. Delivery was really fast. Thanks JCK!
