A Kiridashi knife is a Japanese hand-forged utility knife regularly used for woodworking, bamboo crafting, whittling, marking, deburring, pencil sharpening, paper cutting, leathercrafting, etc.
Kiridashi are made by joining hard steel and soft metal; the same method used for Japanese swords.
Requiring less force to realize exceedingly smooth and accurate cuts, Kiridashi knives leave clean, finished surfaces because of their sharpness.
Their compactness makes Kiridashi ideal for camping and outdoor use. They are also used for maintaining bonsai and grafting plants and trees....
