Wooden Saya (Sheath / Scabbard) are one of the most commonly purchased accessories and are the best way to protect your knife blade during storage - whether that be short-term, long-term or whilst travelling.
These Saya are made of Magnolia wood, which resists water and shrinkage well. Each Wooden Saya is carefully handcrafted to fit each blade and comes with a Black Pakka Wood pin, which is used to secure the blade within the wooden Saya. Many of our customers enjoy spending time together with their fine Japanese knives and fine wooden Saya.
The Misono UX10 Series knives are one of the highest-quality professional stainless steel kitchen knives on the market and they feature a stylish, well balanced, slanted Nickel Silver bolster. This particular handcrafted Magnolia Wooden Saya has been specially customized to seamlessly fit the UX10 No.711 Gyuto 180mm and UX10 with Dimples No.761 Gyuto180mm. It offers the best-possible fit for the UX10 Gyuto 210mm and it is therefore the Saya we recommend for the knife.
This Special Order Made Wooden Saya is Suitable for: Misono UX10 No.711 Gyuto 180mm (UX10 Dimples No.761 Gyuto180mm)
Each Wooden Saya is completely hand crafted, so each one will vary slightly in size, thickness and interior space. Since Saya are usually custom made to fit each individual knife blade, if you purchase a Saya for an old, previously purchased knife, it might not fit perfectly. In order to avoid this problem, we strongly recommend that you buy a Saya along with your knife, so that the necessary pre-fitting and adjustments can be made.
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 overall experience for using the saya was and still is good. The saya fits the knife very well and thus does its job. I would like it even better if the overall saya thickness could be reduced, but maybe that can't be done, I don't know .
