VG10 Folding Knife

  • These Japanese folding knives are an old style of knife that has existed in Japan for many years.  It had a resurgence in popularity in post WWII Japan among the baby boomers.  The knives are traditionally forged in either the san-mai or warikomi construction (softer cladding and a harder core steel). This knife has a silver handle.

    Intended Use: Woodworking (including work with bamboo) and general utility for home, outdoor, and gardening.  

    How to Use: There is no locking mechanism on this knife, thus the user must hold the "chikiri" (the tab for opening and holding open) down steadily at all times during use (the thumb is generally used)

    Warning: Do not ever grab the blade.  Pay great attention when opening and closing the blade.  As the steel is very hard, cutting hard items or using excessive force when cutting can cause chipping.  Do not use this knife for unintended purposes.  Keep the knife away from children.
