In Stock Item: 3-Inch Folding Knife with Keepsake Box
Boasting a superior VG-10 hand-forged stainless steel damascus Japanese blade, this 3-inch pocket knife has internal components and liners of titanium and is entirely handcrafted. Every internal component, including the little ultra-thin washers, is hand-engineered to perfection and fits only this knife. Nothing is mass-produced. This lock-back folding custom pocket knife has been made in collaboration with To-Un Ihara of Japan. The blade is signed by Mr. Ihara. His knives have a beautifully smooth action with a definitive mid-point pause.
VG-10 is one of the highest grades of cutlery steel and a preferred steel for many professional chefs because of its excellent edge retention and ease of sharpening. For this knife, we have asked Mr Ihara to make a thicker, heavier blade than you would find on VG-10 chef knives for more durability of use as a pocket knife.
