This large Kiridashi knife with unique copper-riveted handle would make a fine desk or workshop blade.

The knife is hand-forged of 5160 spring steel and heat-treated to hold a sharp edge. The hammered forge finish is left intact, and only the convex cutting edge is polished. Seven hand-made copper rivets line the integral grip. Filed grooves along the spine provide purchase for the thumb, and all the edges have been eased for comfort.

A heavyweight tooled black leather sheath provides protection for the sharp edge.  

The overall length of the knife is 8.5", and the blade edge is 3.5".

They provide and lots of leverage at the edge and tip. They are useful for household chores, and in the workshop and garden.
