At a magnificent 13” overall, the Shinwa Black Takegara Max Pocket Knife is undeniably intimidating, but the bamboo inspired, no-slip handle grooves assure you can take it firmly and securely in hand. The pocket knife has a 6” keenly sharp, stainless steel blade with a matte grey finish and double flippers for quick deployment. The blade can be quickly deployed, with one hand, with the smooth ball-bearing opening system. The grooved and textured handle scales are of a black G10, secured with sturdy screws and features engraved kanji. The smoothly opening pocket knife is 7” when closed and features a sturdy black metal pocket clip for ease of carry. A design that’s both traditional and innovative, Shinwa pocket knives are sturdy modern everyday carries built by masters of ancient swordcraft.
