Skeleton Dashi - Minimalist Pocket Knife

* Shipping is FREE within Canada *

This "skeletonized" kiridashi is the newest additional to our little shop. It is lightweight, rugged and exceptionally handy. 

We base almost all of our pocket knife designs on the traditional Japanese kiridashi form because it is ideally suited to almost any daily task. The flat pointed blade profile makes it ideal for detail work and slicing and the ergonomic handle means its very comfortable in hand despite not having wood scales. This keeps it slim and compact.

The Skeleton Dashi is the perfect choice if you are looking for a gift for that knife lover in your life. Its a useful knife that is unlike almost any other knife on the market; a classic design with a modern twist.

The knife measures 5.5" with a cutting edge just over 2". It is crafted from 1095 high carbon steel, a blade steel known for its edge retention and toughness. This steel is not stainless so please follow the care instructions included with your knife.

**Must be 18 years or older to purchase. Know your local knife laws.**

Leather sleeves are custom made to fit each blade. Select which colour you prefer to customize yours. A leather lanyard cord that is matched to the sheath.

With its compact size and sturdy build, this is an excellent every-day pocket knife that will hold up for decades.

Must be 18 years or older to purchase. Be aware of your local knife laws.


Ordering Notes
Please order the sheath colour you'd prefer.
Our blades are made with high carbon steel. This steel is known for its edge retention and durability. However, unlike stainless steel these blades will naturally oxidize over time and gain a beautiful patina.

Care must be taken to prevent corrosion or rust on the blade. Click here for information on how to care for your Origin Handcrafted knife.
Our knives are designed with everyday use in mind and come with an Everyday Structural Guarantee. If for some reason our knives fail to perform as they should, we will replace or repair them at no cost to you. Note that this guarantee does not apply if the knife has been misused or improperly cared for.

To ensure your knife lasts as long (and longer) than you do, follow the steps outlined in our Knife Care section.

Love it

I picked this knife up a few months back. I carry it all the time in my brief case. Perfect size and weight. And crazy sharp!!

Wow. Just wow.

Got my first but with any luck not my last hand made blade.
