At a magnificent 13” overall, the Shinwa Bloodwood Takegara Max Pocket Knife is undeniably intimidating, but the bamboo inspired, no-slip handle grooves assure you can take it firmly and securely in hand. The knife has a 6” 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 7” 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.
