The Sawyer – Sawblade Kiridashi

* Shipping is FREE within Canada *

We took a traditional Japanese Kiridashi knife design and turned it into a fantastic light-weight utility knife with The Sawyer.

These knives are cut from vintage high-carbon steel saw mill blades. This recycled steel is a perfect material for knife-making, as it offers superb edge retention and durability. The knives are 5" long with a 2" cutting edge. 

After we cut the knife from the saw mill blade, we carefully shape it on the grinder. Then, we sharpen the edge until its razor-sharp and ready for use.

The handle is wrapped in stabilized hemp, which provides a sturdy grip while keeping the knife light and maneuverable.

A handcrafted vegetable-tan leather sheath provides the perfect storage. Amber and White hemp handles come with brown sheaths, while Black and Green handles come with black sheaths.

The Sawyer is a light-weight pack knife that will perform under any conditions, from the backyard to the backwoods.

These knives have an asymmetrical grind, so they are not ambidextrous. Refer to the ordering notes below for instructions on getting a right or left-handed blade.

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


Ordering Notes
Please order the knife according to the hand you’ll use to hold it. They are crafted with an asymmetric hollow grind, so they’re not ambidextrous.
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.
