Summary

Slender and light with exquisite sharpness, this folding steak knife is perfect for meals on the go. Its distinctive design is based on the first Japanese pocketknife, made in 1896, but with the modern improvement of a locking system to secure the blade open during use. This personal knife slips easily into a coat pocket or small purse, protected by a leather sheath.

  • Razor-sharp 16˚ cutting angle on each side cuts effortlessly through meats.
  • Japanese 420J2 stainless-steel blade is highly stain-resistant and takes a very fine edge.
  • Lever allows for fast, one-handed opening.
  • Secure locking liner ensures that blade does not close while in use.
  • Durable thermoplastic handle includes an inlaid crest reminiscent of Japanese family emblems and is both durable and beautiful.
  • Includes leather sheath for safe storage.
Dimensions & More Info
  • 3 1/4"-long blade, 4 1/2"-long handle.
  • 2.2 oz. with sheath.
  • Made in China.
Use & Care

Use

  • The blade is extremely sharp and should be handled with caution at all times.
  • If you use your knife often, use a honing steel to realign the edge from time to time.
  • When the time comes to sharpen your blade, we recommend using a whetstone.

Care

  • Thoroughly clean the knife after each use. Simply wipe it clean at the restaurant, then follow up at home by hand-washing the blade with gentle dish soap. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Never soak the knife in water.
  • Store the knife in its leather sheath.
