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.
I work in a commercial kitchen and use a variety of knives throughout the day. Purchasing a Saya for your knife while not necessary, is a must for people who want to keep their expensive knives from being damaged. I sharpen regularly, so if by chance my knife gets chipped or bent I would have to spend a great deal of time realigning and sharpening (given the knifes I own, this is not something I want to do). My Saya helps me prevent that. Perfect fit, does the job, and you can even stain and finish it to match your knife handle.
Great protection for your knife!
Well worth the extra little bit when buying a knife, Ive had mine for over a year now and I've been heavy handed with it from time to time and it is still perfect .
