The Traveller's Companion is our take on the traditional Japanese Kiridashi knife. This is our midsize version, with an overall length of about 5", and a cutting edge of about 2", the Companion is in essence a stripped down pocket knife.
Our hammered version is made from 1084 high carbon steel, known for its toughness and edge retention. Its slim, rugged and extremely versatile design makes it ideal for every day carrying and use.
This particular model also features a hammered forged finish for a little extra character. These durable knives keep a keen cutting edge that allows for controlled cutting and slicing, but are made with an asymmetrical hollow grind meaning they are not ambidextrous knives.

Please be sure to order either a "left" or "right" handed bevel based on your dominant hand.
Each sheath is handcrafted from thick and durable vegetable tan leather, which can be stained to your preference.
Each blade made will be unique, possessing distinct teeth patterns and maybe a few nicks and scrapes from years of use as a file. This steel is not stainless so care is needed to keep them rust free. See our care page for more info.
Must be 18 years or older to purchase. Know your local knife laws.
