How to: Make a Japanese Kiridashi Utility Knife

created at: 05/15/2016The Kiridashi knife, known for its simplicity in design and general utility can be a work of art all on its own. And frankly so can the video documenting the process. Watch the silent and curious process video from Miller Knives and learn how to make your own Kiridashi utility knife from a single piece of 1085 high carbon steel...

Traditionally Kiridashi knives are used by school children for cutting paper and bamboo for art projects as well as by adults for pruning bonsai trees and whittling projects. I honestly was very taken in by the video and quite shocked when the end result was as impressive as it was.
