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
We recommend showing this beautiful knife off by storing it on a magnetic rack or block but if you do need to keep it safely out of sight, please note that it comes with a wooden presentation box and cardboard sleeve for the blade inside it already.
If you still need a guard, the santoku sized blade guard is the best fit for this knife.
