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.

  • Blade Length: approx 3" 
  • Cutting Edge: approx 2-3/4"
  • Blade Thickness (at thickest point) approx 1/8"  
  • Blade Width (at widest point) approx 9/16"
  • Overall Length (closed): 3-7/8"
  • Overall Length (open): 6-3/4"
  • Titanium Liners
  • Lock-back mechanism
  • Definitive mid-point pause 

This knife has a beautiful solid Mozambique ebony handle for an elegant look.

Includes a solid sterling silver bead on leather lace lanyard, plus cordura lined storage pouch.

We do have additional unmade blades and components available now in stock. Orders can be accepted with your own custom wood handle in ebony, curly koa, or other woods.
