I bought this for a Tojiro DP Gyuto and it fit perfectly! The pin also stays in place nice and tight. The only thing that I wish was different was that the saya came stained/finished but that is an extremely minor detail though, so I am not complaining. I knew what I was buying and will buy another one in a heartbeat if I ever have to. Thank you CKTG!
4A Modest Saya for a Modest Price, January 4, 2019
Posted By: Tyler Pew - verified customer
I purchased this Saya to go along with my Tojiro DP Gyuto, and it fits the knife perfectly. My only complaint is that the Saya is an unlacquered wood, so I would highly recommend getting a wood stain or protectant to increase its' lifespan incase it comes into contact with a wet knife or water in general. Other than that, it looks great and protects my knife like it should. Take care of your Saya and knife, and it will take care of you and your tools.
The saya arrived today and it's great! Plain wood, but I plan to oil it to make it look a bit sexy :-) You have great products at reasonable prices and the information you provide is very useful.It may seem crazy to you that I would be prepared to pay postage around the same value as the saya, but there's nowhere to buy one locally. We get used to paying for postage. I'm a happy customer.
First off I only looked at 4 other web sites for a saya, with that being said I chose this one. ProsNot to expensive , clean wood working, fast shipping,It fit my 240 gyuto and I you can buy extra pins if you want .ConsI wish the wood was finished, loose fit on the saya I had wanted less movment , wish it was 10 bucks cheaper that would be a fair price. Heads up cktg offers 2 saya'sA and B read the discription it will let you know which one to purchase.Over all if your in need of a saya buy it and if you are bothered by the those Cons buy it somewhere else.
This is a nice enough saya, but it seems unfinished. It could have used a quick touch with some sand paper before the manufacturer sent it out the door. It's still pretty raw looking and mine actually has a knot in the wood. I would think they should be trying to use only clear pieces of wood for a product like this.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
