New At Hand-eye Supply: Mikihasa Folding Kiridashi Knife – Core77

Use with a square for satisfyingly precise lines, and cut paper, plastic, leather, light woods and more with ease. The blade is “blue paper” number 2 steel, a high carbon cutlery steel laminated warikomi style, providing both wicked sharpness and durability. Kiridashi are usually a single fixed blade with no additional handlemore than a little unnerving to have lying around in a tool box. The Mikihisa adds safety and portability by adapting the style into a folding knife and adding a more ergonomic bubinga wood handle. This thing is pretty large for a folder, more shop tool than EDC pocket knife. It comes nice and sharp, and is super easy to maintain. The lock back is a simple side to side lever.

Several years later, Janich was teaching a seminar and was once again approached by one of his students and asked if he could develop a knife with a legal blade length. Janich showed the student photos of the knife he had ground just a couple years earlier and the student also requested the knife. Soon he had developed a devoted following among dedicated knife users who wanted to carry the most potent cutting tool legally permitted in their own jurisdictions. Sometime later, Janich was approached by Mark Galli, Kahrs Eastern U.S. Sales Manager asking if Janich would develop a knife that really complemented the spirit of Kahrs popular pistol line.

Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images Starting April 25, passengers flying on U.S. flights will be allowed to carry small pocket knives blades less than 6-centimeters, up to two golf clubs, ski poles, as well as sporting sticks used for hockey, lacrosse, and billiards. Baseball bats will remain on the no-fly list, though wiffle-ball bats and souvenir baseball bats (less than 24-inches long) will be allowed. These are popular items we see regularly, agency spokesman David Castelveter told Bloomberg News. They dont present a risk to transportation security. The move comes following a recommendation by a TSA working group that such items are not a security threat.
