This is a kwaiken made out of 5/32" thick 1095. It has red dyed maple burl scales. Overall length of the knife is 8 inches, with a blade of just under 4 inches.

This knife comes with a kydex sheath and a couple different carry options, PM me for more details or if you just want the base sheath go through checkout like normal.

Kwaikens were historically small japanese knives, often carried by women, similar to sgian dubhs in Scotland. Today they have become a common edc knife style, being adapted to many different forms of fixed blade and folder alike. Their small size makes them easy to fit in a pocket or on a belt. The gradual swell of the cutting edge allows for a good geometry for everyday cutting tasks, such as opening packages, cutting strings/ropes, and anything else you might need.

Had this made for my husband. OuroborosBladeworks was quick to respond and answer all questions. The sheath has great tension securing the knife tightly. I highly recommend him and will use him again soon!
