Based on the Japanese Kiridashi knife, this is a smaller version of The Wright.

Specs: It measures approximately 10.1cm in length, with a cutting edge that is 5cm long and a 3mm spine thickness.

We start by cutting the rough shape of The Wright out of an old steel file. These vintage files are an excellent source of high-carbon steel, which holds an excellent edge while being highly durable.

After the rough shape is complete, we’re ready to bring the blade to life.

The Wright is taken over to our grinder and worked by hand. Sparks fly, and the beautiful shape emerges. After careful shaping and grinding, each blade is finished by sharpening on a wet stone.

Despite its small size, The Wright fits comfortably in the hand and is extremely adept at cutting and slicing.

The rugged build is perfectly suited for hard work even in extreme conditions. And the compact size makes it a joy to carry, whether you’re in the backwoods or the backyard.

A handcrafted vegetable-tan leather sheath provides the perfect storage for this knife.

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.


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.

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.

I'm delighted with Kiridashi. I gave it to my friend who cuts a lot of paper, cardboard, string and other material that she uses in her work. She is delighted and no longer parted with it. Thank you for your work it is also a beautiful object.
