As most know, I don't forge weapons except to learn a new technique. However, I don't consider these kiridashi knives as weapons; they are more of a tool than weapon. They are great as marking tools for woodworking and for just sitting around, whittling, and contemplating the state of the world. Such as it is. These kiridashi are almost complete; the only thing missing is a chord wrap for the handle. Most of those sold on the internets don't include a wrap of any sort. The blue wrapped one was for a birthday present for a friend and local woodworker. The rest will be given as gifts for those who donated files or sold at the local Days of '92 here in Creede.
