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.

The only choice for protecting your knives!
First of all – I am a returning client, who purchased Japanese knives on JapaneseChefsKnife.Com 4 times – as a special gifts for my father, my best friend, my brother and for my sister. I’m delighted with the quality of these items and I really love the symbolic meaning. These knives are extremely sharp, durable, helpful, and you need to take care of them – just like my relations with the special people I gave these knives to. Magnolia wooden saya is a perfect choice for an elegant object that can be used to protect the beautiful and valuable blades. Moreover I used other local craftsmen services to engrave a special dedication on the wooden saya to make it even more personalized and emphasize the uniqueness of the whole set. I’m not going to share the photo of the saya here, since with the engraving it is a personal thing, but I can definitely recommend using the saya as a great customizable item for protecting even greater knives (with a hidden soul). I’m grateful to the unbelievable craftsmen from Seki district for making these beautiful items and grateful to people from JapaneseChefsKnife.com for making them available for us. Everyone who got this gift from me was bewildered, which means I was happy as well. Thank you! ありがとうございました
It’s perfect. I use it for one of the knives I purchased thorough JCK. I also stained and sealed it, really a perfect fit.
Bought two of these and both were of great quality and fit very well. One for my Sakai Kikumori 240m Rosewood Handle Kengata Gyuto that came without a saya, and one for my 10 year considerably shrunk Ikkanshi Tadatsuna 270mm whose saya had cracked. The knives slide in easily and hold in place well even without the Saya Pin. The Saya pins fit very snug. Wood was well finished and aesthetically pleasing in character and shape. Prompt shipping and excellent customer service. Thank you!
