Urushi is very cumbersome to make and usually takes at least four months or longer, so the price is high. There are more than 30 steps in the production of the Urushi process, and each step takes at least 2-3 days to dry. If there is some accident, it will be longer. There are many factors affecting the completion of Urushi production, such as temperature, humidity and so on. Urushi saya must be dried naturally at a proper temperature. The harsh temperature in winter and summer would make the production slow down.
If you choose Urushi as saya’s protective layer, the delivery time will be longer. But urushi is an ancient craft, and it is used on Japanese ancient Nihonto. The koiguchi of our Urushi Saya is inward concave, and saya’s inside is hand-tailored according to the blade, so the blade doesn’t shake too much inside saya.
However, if you are willing to pay a higher price and can wait for it, it will give you a surprise.
