This saya is absolutely stunning visually, and the photos on the site truly don't do it justice: it's VERY aesthetically pleasing; and at least in my experience--there isn't a better looking retail saya on the market. The fit and finish are high quality. The laquered finish is matte black with glossy spots, super clean look. I bought this for my Takamura Migaki R2 gyuto, and there is a small amount of play when the blade is inserted in the saya, but I expected this as the Takamura profiles are textbook lasers. This particular knife won't see a ton of travel, and I took that into consideration and didn't expect a proper friction fit. I'm in the Midwest US, and I have to give a proper nod to Loki, who promptly answered my questions and explained the shipping process out of Japan and went out of their way to ensure a quality customer service experience. Bravo. I will DEFINITELY do business with this company again. 10/10.
As described and good communication with customer service. Recommend site for high end knifes
So I bought this saya to go with the knife purchase I made and it fit perfectly. The fit and finish of this saya is extremely good and the pin to keep the knife inside the saya while not in use is a very nice addition. Definitely would recommend.
Good quality, easy use. Only problem the clip for closing was lost almost same day.
The Saya is a great item item for keeping the knife blade safe when not in use. It is well made and also looks good. Really glad we bought this as the knife is very sharp and recommend anyone buy this when investing in these excellent knives.
