The website says the Saya is for a 165mm Deba, so I bought for my Deba of the same length. However, once I received the product and tested it with my knife it showed that i could easily fit a 170mm knife with a blade height of maybe 10-20mm more than what my knife has.
This leads to the knife wobbling around in the sheath, which I find a tad scary.
I’ve contacted Masashi about this, but was told that the Saya is made for their knifes only and that nothing could be done. Though I am a bit disappointed about the whole debacle I understand. Yet I am confused how a Saya for 165mm knives does not fit a knife of the same length.
In the end I have a wobbly Saya that still makes sure my Deba does not eat through the knife cover of my knife bag, which is better that being without one!
The product feels well made, however it says the pin is plywood, but is clearly plastic. It doesn’t bother me though.
Magnolia Saya Sheath for Deba with Plywood Pin 165mm
Beautiful saya with great craftsmanship and quality.
I never take my knife out, but it gives me peace of mind.
Works great for protecting the knife if you have to store it in a drawer like me. Recommended!
With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.
The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.
The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.
The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
