Samekawa is used to wrap tsuka, and to make same-nuri saya. Although white same is generally used, we can dye skins in different colours upon request.
If you just want offcuts or panels of samekawa - a much cheaper option - contact me
Whole skins are priced according to the cleanliness, size and the shape of nodules. Skins of Grades 1-3 are large enough for all types of tsuka. There is only one line of nodules per skin. These skins are harvested from mature rays, unlike cheaper skins elsewhere.
