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.
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.
Saya fitted my Hankotsu perfectly very happy.
I have bought this saya for my Sakai Takayuki Hankotsu. Fits the knife perfectly and it's made of very good material,looks really nice too.
I have now purchased many wooden Saya for protecting many of my knives. They are beautiful. Try rubbing Camellia oil in to highlight the natural course of the grain and to protect them from water etc. Or with a wood burning pen scorch in Japanese characters to personally identify your knife. They are worth the extra to keep your knifes both safe and sharp.
