First thing i did when i opened it was give myself a small cur without noticing. Blades needs to be worked a little but after awhile I was able to easily open it.
Excellent friction folder, makes a great sacrificial secondary or a primary. The reverse tanto and slight curve in blade makes it super useful, the grind is easy to resharpen. It does have a tiny micro bevel on one side but dissapears after a sharpen
It’s smaller than you would think, but with most things, do a little research. I almost didn’t buy it after I read the size and got out a ruler. But I did and I’m very happy with my purchase, and I have since bought another model. They are super sharp and interesting and unique and I’ll probably buy another soon.
Id buy a bigger model, if i had to do it again. Interesting design from japan.
its being used as a letter opener so no complaints here.
