OAOFFFK9EB: Ohta FK9 Friction Folder, Ebony Wood
Ohta Knives
 
The Ohta FK Friction Folder is a non-locking folding design from Hiroaki Ohta that is just a pleasant knife to hold and to use, especially if you like simplistic blades. It features the extended blade tang which sits on the spine of the handle and your hand prevents the knife from closing during use. It feels great in the hand due to its slim, comfortable handle and rock solid construction, even though it does not lock. It's a gentlemen's folder you can use every day and just forget about it when it's in your pocket. The knife and leather slip pouch weigh right at, or slightly over one ounce together. The blade is a functional drop point shape with a satin finish, made from D2 tool steel. The ergonomic handle is a single piece of ebony wood with a lanyard hole and stainless steel pin and washer. There is no pocket clip on this model but it does come with a leather drop pouch from Hiroaki Ohta. Handmade in Japan.
