I read that the kiridashi knife was highly used by kids in Asia to sharpen their pencils.
Also carpenters used many different types and styles to carve with. Being an aspiring carver I thought I would like to give it a try.
First I made the blade then pinned Gaboon ebony to the sides. Next I fashioned a protector for the blade. Making it from ebony and maple.
Apon further studies I also found that some law enforcement are urged to carry a similar knife for close contact protection.
They are also called a neck knife….ugh. Enough said on that one.
I believe it will come in very handy for my carving…and if not it was a blast to make.
Cutting edge is 1 3/4” long and overall length is 3 1/2” long.
Thanks for the peek
Hope y’all are having a great day!
