As Shirasaya refers to a special sword mount, which was formerly used for the gentle keeping the blade. Especially in times of peace, the blades were kept in it perfectly protected. The unpainted Magnolia wood absorbs the moisture inside the sheath, leading them to the outside and thus protects the blade from rust.
