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. On account of its innate practicality, it’s used for the whole thing from whittling, carving, paring, and nearly each and every imaginable cutting chore. Now Cold Steel has up to date this famous classic utility knife by making a folding knife version! Our Kiridashi folder offers a razor sharp classically shaped blade constructed from 4034SS stainless steel that’s mated to a handsome, comfortable Griv Ex grip to be able to never rot, crack, warp or mildew. To guard your fingers, it comes with our Tri-Ad Locking mechanism, proven time and time again to be the strongest, safest locking mechanism to be had. Light in weight, thin and handy, our Kiridashi is a joy to carry clipped to a pocket. And it’s bargain priced and a big value to boot!
