Kiridashi, Folding Knife
The Kiridashi is the original Japanese utility knife, traditionally carried in the sleeve pocket of one's kimono by both Samurai and peasant alike. The Kiridashi is now used by practically everyone in Japan, from children to master craftsmen! In many ways, it's the fixed blade equivalent of the western pocket knife. Because of its innate practicality, it's used for everything from whittling, carving, paring and nearly every conceivable cutting chore.
Now Cold Steel® has updated this famous classic utility knife by making a folding knife version! Cold Steel®'s offers a razor-sharp, classically shaped blade made from 4034SS stainless steel that's mated to a handsome, comfortable Griv-Ex™ grip that will never rot, crack, warp or mildew. To guard your fingers, it comes with Cold Steel®'s Tri-Ad® locking mechanism, proven time and time again to be the strongest, safest locking mechanism available.
Light in weight, thin and handy, Cold Steel®'s Kiridashi is a joy to carry clipped to a pocket. And it's bargain priced and a tremendous value to boot!

It is also relatively easy to sharpen and features a moderate degree of wear resistance.
