The Japanese Kiridashi Pocket Knife features as much functionality as it does style. It uses a renowned Japanese traditional design and measures only 4” from tip to tail.
They are much simpler than regular pocket knives thanks to the stripped down design making them easier to handle.
The base materials used are recycled files, which according to knife experts use very high quality of steel. This is mostly W1 or 1095.
This material makes the pocket knife durable and extremely easy to sharpen. It also ensures that the knives retain their edge longer than most.
They are thus helpful for such intensive activities as carving and gardening. They can also perform light prying functions, cut cords, remove splinters and open up boxes.
Since the grind is only one sided, you need to specify whether you want one for a right-handed person or a leftie. They come in leather sleeves with a customization option with regards to the dye and thread you prefer.
