The Japanese Kiridashi knife design was our inspiration for The Smith.
This compact version measures about 4” in length, with a cutting edge just under 2” long.
We use 1095 carbon steel for The Smith. This steel gives the knife remarkable edge retention and toughness. When treated right, this knife will last for decades to come.
The rough shape of the blade is cut by hand, then we take it to the grinder for shaping. As flecks of white-hot metal fly, the knife comes to life.
Once the body of the knife is complete, it goes to the wet-stone for a razor-sharp edge. Finally, we give the knife a hammered forge finish for that extra bit of rugged style.
Each blade is tempered for a balance between toughness and edge retention.
A handcrafted vegetable-stained leather sheath provides the perfect storage.
The Smith is a compact, sturdy, efficient knife that works great as an every-day-carry.
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.
VERY high quality handmade knife! Highly recommended
My knife arrived with several other packages and was used straight away with its’ sharp blade to slice them all open. It is comfortable for me to hold ( especially important to me as I have a disability) and I also appreciate that the knife is an upcycled object. Thank you!
Originally, it was scheduled to arrive in August but I was ecstatic when it arrived in July. After looking at the blade I was thrilled to see the sheer craftsmanship that was shown from this piece. It came sharp out of the box and holds its edge very well. I also loved the smell of the fresh handmade leather lanyard and sheath that it came with.
Absolutely exceeded everyone of my expectations! Could not be happier!
