This springless folding knife is a pleasure to use and to hold. It has a very solid 3mm thick blade in a handsome, solid brass case. The blade is Augami Blue Paper Steel High carbon and is laminated like all traditional knives from Japan. It takes an unbelievable edge. Use it for marking out and trimming, or anywhere you would use a tough knife. It’s equally at home in the workshop or on the desktop. Only 100mm long folded. Made in Japan.
