Saya Bunka [Knife Sheath] - 200mm (7.8")
We designed this saya (protective knife sheath) especially for our knife Bunka Black Damascus 200 mm (7.8"). Sayas are hand-made from walnut wood, so the pattern and colors are slightly different with every piece, as it can be seen on the photos.
This saya can also fit on bunka blades from other manufacturers with the same (or smaller) dimensions of up to 200mm (7.8") in length, 45mm (1.77") in width, and with a thickness at the spine of up to 2mm (0.14").
The engraved dragon on the saya is the symbol of our hometown - Ljubljana (the capital of our small and beautiful country of Slovenia). Since our new knife is a collaboration between us and Japan, where the dragon is a majestic and mystical creature of Japanese mythology, we find it to be a nice symbolic bridge between our two cultures.
