    Hey guys I just finished up one of my 3V kraikens and it is now up for grabs.

    I offer these in either chisel or double ground. This particular one is double grind. I grind these down to a near zero edge and put a small micro bevel on it. This aids in edge durability and also ease of sharpening. This knife is razor sharp and the point is like a needle.

    This is my Kraiken model, which has lots of built in sori. Here is a video explaining the knife design.

    Here is one push cutting through 3/4" of Veg tan leather

    This particular one is .210" CPM 3v with a double grind down to a razor sharp edge and point.

    I have been carrying and using a tanto style pocket knife for over ten years straight. When I say "tanto" I am really referring to the grind style as that is what it is generally know as here. The utility nature of the tanto blade shape I think is underrated and often misunderstood. The angled front edge works awesome for scraping, much like a chisel. And the secondary point where the bevels meet means the blade cuts deeply on a pull cut or stab. The grind also reinforces the tip for piercing.

    These are designed as a hard use utility/fighting knife.

    Here are the specs.

    -OAL - 9.6"
    -Blade - 5" Double ground
    -Steel - .210" CPM 3v with proper HT done by myself including LN cryo. My HT benefits not only fine edge stability but also increases corrosion resistance to near stainless levels.
    -Handle - Tsuka Ito. The menuki is hammered copper. The handle is soaked in west systems marine grade epoxy. It is washable and very durable.
    -Sheath - kydex
    -Price - $540 + $15 Priority shipping.
    Paypal or postal money order preferred
