This is an example of what I call a "Pocket Kiridashi". These are small EDC knives designed to be carried and used! If you have never tried a kiridashi, you are missing out on one of the most useful knife designs around! The blade is made from .135" 1095 steel, hardened to 60 HRC. I performed all heat treating and tempering operations in my computer controlled oven. The blade features a satin bevel and hand rubbed flats. The handle is quite comfortable in either standard or reverse grip. The wrap is nylon and is impregnated with epoxy to prevent unraveling or moisture retention. The under wrap is genuine grey sting ray skin. The knife is ground with a chisel hollow grind for a right hand user. This is a fantastic cutter! Razor sharp and a great all around user! Makes an excellent "non-threatening" office or EDC blade! - 1095 - 60 HRC - .135" Stock - Hollow Chisel Grind (Right Hand) - 2 Tone Finish - Japanese wrap with genuine grey sting ray skin - Razor Sharp - 5.5" OAL, with a cutting edge of just over 1.8" - Extremely secure kydex sheath with neck lanyard Headed to the post office this afternoon! **Sold** Thanks Guys!
