The sheath aka saya covers your knife and helps protect from damage during transport or when kept in a draw. We strongly recommend using sheaths/sayas to all our customers as they are a snug fits and will prevent scratches and bending. The sheaths do not contain any strong resigns and are moisture resistant and are made with Magnolia wood. Please be sure to clean and dry your knife well before placing into the knife cover, each knife cover is different when it comes to brands so please make sure you select the matching sheath to its blacksmith.
The Santoku is the most popular knife in the Japanese home and considered to be an all rounder in the kitchen. The meaning of Santoku is the “three virtues” in Japanese and is a reference to its multi purpose and versatility. It can be used to prepare fish, chicken and most fruits and vegetables but is too small for large food items like watermelons and bigger cuts of meat. The Santoku is great as an alternative if you have a larger chef’s knife as most Santokus come in at around 165mm to 180mm its easy to handle and has a snubbed nose to it.
