The design of this Japanese friction folder dates back to 1896. This simple elegant design uses an extended tang to deploy the blade and assists in holding the blade in the open position. Reverse tanto blade uses three layer SK Steel for a sharp edge. Stainless handle has a black finish and forms a trough for the blade to completely hide into and features a small hole for a lanyard or necklace. Made in Japan.
About SK Steel: Japanese SK Steel is the least expensive and least pure of the Japanese paper steels as it contains moderate levels of sulphur and phosphate. Considered a basic carbon steel, it offers superb edge retention and can be more easily sharpened than higher grade steels.
