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!

I really like the overall looks of the blade and the engraving. Nice looking mantis.
