Available is a beautiful Japanese Kiridashi and leather sheath


Blade: The Japanese Kiridashi is a multi function single right bevelled knife. Often sold as a Japanese marking knife, the stiff, single bevelled blade of the Kiridashi truly excels at heavier cuts; leather, veneers etc. Kiridashi are also wonderful tools for carving, they are used in Japanese kitchens for carving vegetables into ornate decorative flowers. Their suitability for carving also makes the Kiridashi a favourite tool for luthierie (stringed instrument making).

Our Kiridashi are handmade in Japan by Okeya, a traditional family blacksmithing business that has specialised in Kogatana knives (of which Kiridashi are a sub-type) since 1927. 


Leather: The knife is being sold with a handstitched brown leather sheath with a tan waxed thread.
