Engraved Kiridashi


Recommended Posts

Another knife I just finished. This one is (very!) loosely based on the Japanese kiridashi style knife (basically a general purpose/utility sort of blade). I "Americanized" it by using a standard Western-style double edge bevel rather than the traditional Japanese single side chisel bevel.


It's 1095 carbon steel with copper scales and three steel pins, 2 1/4 inch blade, 7 inches overall length.


Thanks for looking!

Wonderful take on a classic, well done sir!

I've never been big on kiridashi, but I want to tell you, I really, really like this one!
