    Question Help finding a Saya for my knife

    Hello, everyone I am a super noob with knives the best thing i have ever owned is a Chicago Cutlery. Recently I was given as a gift a Shun Premier 8" Knife. I know it's not a favorite among the Pros and gets much disdain ( )from what i have been reading, but to me coming from the chicago Cutlery walmart edition it feels like a Samurai sword and i think is Beautiful piece so please, bear with me!

    Does Anyone know of a Saya from another Manufacturer that would fit the Shun Premier 8" chef knife? I would really appreciate if someone could point me to the right direction and if you want to trow a couple of advice for noob I'm totally up for that!

    The profile of the Shun Premier makes it almost certain that you will have to have a custom saya made.

    How much are you willing to spend. You might be better of with a reliable knife guard.

    The fat belly of shun chef means it is unlikely that you can find an aftermarket saya.

    I agree. You could probably buy a good knife guard for a tenth of the price of a saya. If you're just looking to protect the blade when it's in the drawer a knife guard is the way to go.

    If you can find one, the Shun magnetic guard does a great job of protecting your blade:

    I have a Bladesafe on one of my beaters...I think I'd take a pass on it. The magnetic one looks cool, though.

    Oh, by the way, owning a Shun is nothing to be embarrassed about; You have a knife that is much better than average. Enjoy it!

    Yeah the magnetic ones work well. I picked some up for the Wife's Wusthofs. The Wusthof brand ones had bad reviews for wearing out quickly.
