In Stock Item: 3" Lock-Back Folding Knife w/Stainless Steel bolster and Brass Liners
Boasting a superior VG-10 hand-forged stainless steel damascus Japanese blade, the internal components and liners of our lock-back folding custom pocket knife has been entirely handmade by To-Un Ihara in Japan. It has 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.
