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.
I love the protection the Sayas provides our JapaneseChefsKnives as well as the attractiveness of the Saya. Sayas are part of the Japanese knife experience and tradition and I highly recommend one always purchase a Saya for each knife.
Wonderful experience. Order came very quick and everything went through perfectly. Articles bought are great.
It's A good way to store and transport your favorite knives.
This is a simple product that does its job very well. I bought some “starter” knives for my daughter, who recently moved out of the house. She’ll probably move almost every year for a while while she’s in school, so I bought this saya to facilitate safe transport and storage of her Misono 534 paring knife. It’s a perfect fit. Can’t ask for more than a tool that is exactly right for the job!
I have been using the Magnolia Wooden Saya for many years, for knives of different sizes. It is quite safe for storing knife individually. Safe to keep the small petty knife in luggage during travel for cutting fruit. Nearly all of them are still in good condition. Just one of them has a small gap between the wood because the glue became weakened. Still OK to use it.
