Inspired by the Japanese Kiridashi Knife, this Little EDC Implement Should Prove Quite Useful
 

You won’t find a more streamlined, easier-to-carry knife than this amazing masterpiece of Japanese-inspired bladework.

The Bison Gears Kiridashi Pocket Knife is modeled after the Kiridashi knives used by Japanese woodworkers, and the result is a blade small enough to fit in your pocket, edc pouch, or bag but still hardy enough to use on any job site or DIY project.

 

 

The knife itself is made using 8CR13MOV stainless steel, and is just 1.38 inches tall and 2.46 inches long—smaller than your credit card or driver’s license. Thanks to the integrated finger ring, you have a solid, secure grip on the knife, and the thick blade is incredibly sturdy for precise cuts into tough materials (like wood or leather).

 

 

When not in use, simply slide the pocket knife back into its “sawa” (sheath/holder)—made from fiberglass and ABS plastic—to protect both the blade and the contents of your pocket. It doesn’t get more portable and versatile than this.
