Item weight: 1.40 oz.
Description: Saya (traditional Japanese wooden sheaths) protect a knife's edge when stored in a drawer or knife roll. This saya is designed to fit 240mm (9-1/2 inch) Western handled slicing knives (sujihiki). Because all knives are made slightly different sizes, this saya will not fit all 240mm sujihiki. If ordered with a knife, we will verify a perfect fit prior to shipping. If ordered separately, the saya may need to be modified to perfectly fit the knife. This saya is designed for sujihiki that measure approximately 9-3/4 inches from tip to bolster, a blade height of 1.42 inches, and a blade width of .08 inches.
This saya (sheath) is handmade from ho wood (a close relative of magnolia). It is designed for a friction fit. Adding an ebony pin can lock the blade in place if the fit is loose.
