Popular with students in Japan, this thin bladed kasaya marking knife is tightly wrapped in thin folded brass sheet. The blade is covered with a cleverly designed sheath with one side sprung so that it stays in place securely.

The blade is made from Japanese high carbon spring steel strip, it takes a very acceptable edge and is easy to sharpen

Cheap, practical, well designed and effective.

  • Overall length: 128mm
  • Edge length: 35mm
  • Handle Length: 72mm
  • Right Hand Bevel - (perfect for right handed use)

The case has a small indentation, as shown in the images - this is part of the design to keep the blade in place

Take care when removing the sheath

    Really Impressed with this little marking knife. With or across the grain it leaves a wonderful clean line, just let the knife do the work. A joy to use, and as usual 100% service from these guys.
