Modeled after the evenly spaced rings of the bamboo fighting staff, the evenly spaced grooves on the handle of the Shinwa Bloodwood Takegara Pocket Knife give you the slip-free grip you absolutely need! The knife has a 4 1/4” keenly sharp dark grey Raindrop Damascus patterned steel blade and double flippers. The blade can be quickly deployed, with one hand, with the smooth ball-bearing opening system. The handle scales are of a reddish-brown wood, secured with metallic blue screws and features engraved kanji. The smoothly opening pocket knife is 4 3/4” when closed and features a sturdy metallic blue 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.
