The Saya is a wooden cover to protect your chef's knife. The Saya fits the Nipponblades knives perfectly. Please make sure you select the size matching your type of knife.
Saya is a wooden cover to protect your chefknife. It is used for safely storing and transporting. The wooden saya cover is handmade from Ho-no-ki (Japanese Magnolia wood). Ho-wood is the perfect protection for your Nipponblades knife: it is soft, moisture-resistant and contains no strong resins that can damage the steel. The Ho-no-ki is grown in the north of Japan. The cold climate in this area ensures that the wood does not warp.
