KWAIKEN MINI FLIP­PER TI­TAN

Recoil - - I’ll Be In My Office -

411:

The kwaiken (or kaiken) trans­lates lit­er­ally as “pocket sword” and were short dag­gers car­ried in­doors by both men and women of the sa­mu­rai class for self-de­fense and, on rare oc­ca­sions, for rit­ual sui­cide. This 21st-cen­tury take on the an­cient Ja­panese weapon comes from Lu­cas Burn­ley, who’s made a name for him­self by craft­ing tac­ti­cal knives us­ing clean lines and ex­cep­tional ma­te­ri­als. Boker has pro­duced a num­ber of his Kwaiken mod­els and, true to form, this is just as deadly and beau­ti­ful as the oth­ers.

PROS:

A mod­ern and el­e­gant in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the clas­sic sa­mu­rai knife The VG-10 blade cuts like a laser and eas­ily fights off wear and rust.

Flip­per tab opens the blade with a sat­is­fy­ing “snikt” sound

Ti­ta­nium han­dle

CONS:

Sorry, left­ies. Pocket clip is righthanded only.
