Kiridashi

Kiridashi: A small, traditional Japanese knife having a chisel grind, a sharp point, and used as a general-purpose utility knife. The Kiridashi has a much different edge orientation than most knives with lots of leverage at the edge and tip. This gives the Kiridashi great power and control at the tip and blade compared to other knives. It is traditionally used for pruning small trees and bonsai, but make a great utility knife for all kinds of tasks such as: scoring wood and leather, opening boxes, cutting carpet, ripping seams, general cutting, gardening, light prying and even self defense. The pommel is great crushing small items such as nuts, and for self-defense even if left in the sheath.
