File Steel Kiridashi - Large

The midsize version of our Traveller's Companion is our take on the traditional Japanese Kiridashi knife, in essence a stripped down pocket knife measuring approximately 5 inches from tip to tail with a cutting edge a little over 2" long.

Made out of old files and rasps, the metal is commonly known among knife makers to be a great source for some of the finest high carbon steel available.

Its slim, rugged and extremely versatile design makes it ideal for every day carrying and use. 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. 

Ordering Notes:

Refer to our knife info page for up to date shipping times.

Please 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. Be aware of your local knife laws.
