Our aim is to measure and photograph all our products as accurately as possible but due to the handmade nature of many items, please be aware that there may be some variance in the measurements and that things such as blade and knife handle patterns can vary and presentation boxes may differ from those shown but we will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
Compatable saya or guard
Unfortunately due to the length of this blade, we don't currently have any guards or saya that fit so we would recommend storing this either in the presentation box or on a magnetic rack.
While not ideal, it's not uncommon for protecting longer knives like this to combine a sujihiki and petty sized blade guard if you wanted to store it in a drawer using blade guards.
