Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
Protection & care for this knife
The santoku sized magnolia saya and handmade leather saya both fit this knife although there is a little vertical movement due to the shorter height of the blade. A santoku sized blade guard is also a good fit.
