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 ordered this item as a gift for my sister, and had it shipped to her directly. I therefore have not had the chance to examine it myself. After speaking with her, however, I can say that I am extremely pleased with the quality of the knife, saya, and how well they fit together. I personally have been using a Japanese chef’s knife for years and was excited to introduce my sister to an item of the utmost quality and beauty. My order was processed seamlessly and arrived earlier than expected. Tracking was prompt and frequently updated. Overall fantastic experience ordering from japanesechefsknives.com!
