Description

The OFF FK7 medium Friction Folder from Ohta Knives features true Japanese craftsmanship with some of the finest materials on the planet. Mr. Hiroaki Ohta combines pleasing aesthetics with proper functionality in a way seldom found in the realm of friction folding knives. This version of the FK7 has Japanese Mizunara Oak wood handles and a satin finished D2 tool steel blade.

Brand new direct from Hiroaki Ohta.

Blade: You get every day functionality from this two-toned, reverse Tanto profile with strikingly beautiful satin finished hollow grinds contrasted by the raw, forge scale black on the flats and tang. The blade is crafted from D2 tool steel for a dependable razor-like cutting edge that holds with use. The blade tang extends about 3/4 of an inch out of the handle when closed and facilitates one-hand operation. Simply pull the lever toward the back of the handle to open. Once open, apply pressure with your thumb on the spine to hold the blade in the open position for use.

Handle: The ultralight construction comes from the polished Japanese Mizunara Oak handles which feature a unique tiger stripe cross grain. The handle is tapered toward the end for comfort and security in the grip. Japanese Mizunara Oak is very light weight while retaining good durability and resistance to the elements and is traditionally used for furniture and flooring. A hole is provided at the pommel end for lanyard attachment.

Carries via a black leather pocket slip pouch.

D2 Tool Steel: D2 is a cold work tool steel that has been used as a die cutting steel since WW II. D2 has a high chromium content for a tool steel (10-13%) which gives it greater corrosion resistance than most high carbon steels making it semi-stainless. D2 offers a good combination of toughness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance for a good all around knife steel.
