The influence of the Samurai weapons is obvious in this straightforward folding knife design. From the Katana-style handle to the historical Tanto-like blade point, this slim liner lock is crafted with care and taste. The Japanese term "Kaizen" consists of the syllables Kai (change, transformation) and Zen (for the better) thus describing a continuous strive for improvement. Perfection becomes a temporary phenomenon and is only an intermediate goal in the constant process of change.
This minimalist flipper perfectly embodies the idea of modesty as a sign of greatness with its blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal. The black coated, D2 steel blade works its way through everyday cutting tasks with enduring reliability. The decorative blade axis screw is the visual starting point of this piece, as a symbol of change in form and function, and ends in the straight lanyard hole at the end of the handle. The pivot ring and pommel are bronze colored. The textured handle, crafted of non-slip olive green micarta, fits comfortably in the hand and is fitted with a practical, deep carry pocket clip (tip-up/r). Liner lock. Includes a high-quality nylon pouch for storage.
