The saya

My standard saya or wooden sheath are hand carved to fit only your blade. A pin is provided to secure the knife or to release it. They are made from Tulip wood (Liriodendron tulipifera) which is a soft and straight grain wood and similar to the traditional magnolia wood used in Japan. The heartwood is light cream to yellowish brown, with occasional streaks of gray or green.

Occasionally I will use the same wood as the handle to make the saya.
