$5 SHIPPING to the USA, $15 to Canada. FREE if two or more knives of any type are ordered at the same time. Sorry, North American Orders Only.
Aptly named, the 'Katana' folding knife is made from 10Cr15CoMov, created in an effort to recreate the vastly popular VG10 steel. The 10Cr15CoMov Damascus is beautifully crafted 64 layer Damascus steel and offers great edge retention with high carbon content as well as addition of cobalt. Each blade is hand finished by our craftsman to the greatest detail. HRC 58-60.
No matter which way you look at it, it is the perfect EDC knife to show your appreciation for the aesthetics of the traditional Japanese Katana sword, and make a great and versatile cutter to boot.

Although newer to “blades” I can say this has a great solid weight to it and the perfect size for my pocket! The handle is thinner in width so fits snug against one side of the pocket allowing access to the pocket itself with interference.
I love Japanese swords and the handle sold me at first look on the site. The blade is even better looking in person and I really like the open & closing mechanisms!!! (Tip for breaking glass is a bonus and well “hidden” into the design.
I personally would buy again and even gift as a collectable just for the awesome look!
