A Wooden Saya (Sheath / scabbard) is one of the most common knife accessories and it is the best way to safely store your knife when you are not using it, or when you are travelling. This Saya is made of Magnolia wood and has a decorative White, Red & Black Lacquered finish. Since ancient times, Japanese people have enjoyed gardens and scenes with Nishiki-Goi (Koi carp) swimming in ponds. This Wooden Saya version features Japanese Wa Art inspired by Nishiki-Goi.
Many Japanese knife makers use Black Pakka Wood for the handle scales of their Western-style Kitchen Knives, and these knives look very neat and stylish paired with this beautiful, modern Japanese Wa Art Lacquered Saya. Each Wooden Saya comes with a Black Pakka Wood pin (Used to secure the knife) and is carefully hand crafted to fit each individual blade.

*Important Information About Purchasing a Wooden Saya: You may already know that knives produced by different manufacturers will vary in their dimensions - For example, Hattori’s Gyuto 210 mm and Misono’s Gyuto 210 mm have different blade spine thickness and a different blade width, even though they are the same blade type and share the same blade length. Due to these slight differences, there is a possibility that the Wooden Saya will not fit your knife properly (Especially if it is a traditional hammer forged knife, as the blade spine is often quite thick near the bolster or ferrule). Wooden Sayas are entirely hand crafted, so the exact size, thickness and interior cavity space will vary. Sayas are usually custom made to fit each individual knife blade, so, if you purchase one for a knife you already own, there is a possibility that it will not fit perfectly. In order to avoid this problem, we strongly recommend purchasing a Saya at the same time as your knife, so that the necessary adjustments can be made during the fitting process. 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.
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.
It’s great, beautiful design and doesn’t stain from sharpening I’m very happy with it and would like to see more sagas of the same design for yanagibas and debas too. Thank you!
