We all love the Samurai of centuries past, mostly because they hey cool swords and knives, the knife we’re going to be looking at here is a crowdsourced funding project from Indiegogo, by StatGear and the idea is that you can have your own mini Tanto, but this one folds and you can put it in your pocket.
Do you remember when the last time was that you needed a handy blade? Did you have a package to open, a loose thread on your clothing to trim or just needed a blade to cut a fruit? With the Pocket Samurai you will always have a razor-sharp blade within reach!
“The Samurai’s weapon of choice was the Samurai sword; that was so sharp it could cut through a silk scarf gently dropped on it’s blade. We have recreated the iconic Samurai sword…..Pocket sized!”
Samurai swords were known for their extreme strength and sharpness so we’ve designed the Pocket Samurai knives to mimic those traits.
- Grade 5 Titanium handles in either Black or Gray
- 440C Stainless steel Tanto blade
- Stainless steel pocket / money clip
- Keyring loop
- thumb stud
WHY DO YOU NEED A SMALL UTILITY BLADE?:
- Open packages of food
- Open boxes
- Cut your fruit
- Cut rope or twine
- Trim loose threads in your clothing
- Too many more to count!
440c Stainless Steel Blade
This extra thick slab of serious metal is rust proof, very easy to sharpen and has amazing edge retention. Sharpening to a razors edge, this tanto blade comes out of the package ready to slice.
Grade 5 Titanium Handle
If you want metal that is light weight and it is strong, then you need not look any further than the atomic number 22. Ounce for ounce there is no other metallic element with a higher strength to density ratio.
Barely larger than a standard key and weighing less than a single ounce, the pocket samurai can be comfortably carried on your keyring with the stainless keyring loop.
Pocket Clip / Money Clip
Whether you prefer to mount the clip on your pocket as a tip-up carry or to clip a wad of bills in it and carry it inside your pocket or bag you’ll feel secure knowing that the rust proof stainless clip will keep it’s form and strength.
Opening / Locking
When you need your trusty blade, you need your trusty blade! The easy to grip stainless steel thumb stud will enable you to easily open the knife for use. To keep the blade small and lightweight as possible we incorporated a liner-lock mechanism into the rear of the handle so that the blade will lock in in the open position and be easy to unlock and fold away.
