Great companion knife
This is a great little knife. I've been eying one of these guys up for a while, decided to make the purchase. I'm already a big friction folder fan and this knife is just awesome. It has a nice feel in the hand, and isn't awkward to carry, plush it's pretty light weight. The blade thickness stands out because for such a small and sharp knife it's fat and sturdy. I love the finish and performance of the white paper steel. I also like how they don't try to hide that this is a hand forged knife, the spine is still rough and black from the heat treat. Over all it's a really great conversation piece and can hold it's own during everyday use. I carry this thing with me all the time along with my larger Cold Steels and Benchmades. If you're looking for a knife that's absolutely perfect in terms of aesthetics- stick with something mass produced by machines.

Great Knife,Proud to own.
First of all let me start by saying mine came with a couple minor imperfections on the spine (couple rough spots) but that doesn't take away from the knife at all. These blades are hand forged in Japan using traditional techniques so every blade may be unique to some degree. The blade is thick and strong,not to mention sharp. It weighs virtually nothing and I rarely notice it in my pocket. There is no lock but there is enough friction to prevent the knife from opening in your pocket. all in all I would be hard pressed to find a truly hand forged folder with this quality for the price.Plus it's a hand forged Japanese blade! ( I like samurai movies alot ) The handle could be a little more comfortable but I think that would just add weight and ruin the simplicity of the knife overall.
