Thread: Saya or Storage Options for my DT 210!

    Saya or Storage Options for my DT 210!

    Anyone have any ideas on where to get or who might make a saya or sheath of some kind for my new (and f-ing incredible) DT 210mm San Mai? Moving across country soon and want to take it with me protected. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    Burke Cutlery has been making some for takedas and cleavers. Perhaps if you sent him a pm you might be able to work something out. That or a knife guard.

    Depends on how much money you gonna spend

    The best sayamaker imo is Marko
    He did a DT ITK for me:



    I have several works by Marko and recommend his work.

    The DT is an awesome knife. Im glad I have 3 DTs in my drawer.
    Hopefully I will have a custom some day

    You might try one of the magnetic sayas that The Epicurean Edge sells. Have them try it for size. My 270 DT ITK fits in the 270 saya and the magnet takes up the slop.

    Custom sayas and sheaths are nice, but you may not have the time to have one made, so here's a fallback:

    Wrap the blade in kraft paper (or cut up a brown paper bag) and tape the wrapped blade to a piece of 1/4" plywood. Then wrap the whole thing in bubble wrap. Voila!

    Thanks for all these ideas! I'll shoot out some PMs and see what comes back?

    Send it over, or give it to me in person when you are in NYC.

    Did you do the saya and handle at the same time? Quite amazing.
