The Handmade Kiridashi is a Versatile EDC Blade

With its traditional Japanese design, the kiridashi is a stripped down utility knife you’ll use for all sorts of everyday action. They’re made from recycled files, which use high-quality 1095 or W1 steel. These steels are highly durable, easy to sharpen, and will maintain their edge longer than many other blade steels. Because they’re recycled, each knife is truly unique. Choose a left or right handed blade.
