I work part time in a gun store and range. I am a knife guy, and have influenced a few of my friends into knives, good knives, that are not junk. I walked into work one day and the GM slowed me the knives we were going to start carrying, and I started giving them a look over-impressed. I picked up the Dashi and loved the feel in my hand. I had been thinking about getting a kiridashi for cutting leather. Well, it does that very well with the single bevel carpenters precision. Lately it has been the blade that is carried on my daily carry bag and I need to get another one for the leather work table. I wear a large glove, so the pics give you guys needing a visual a reference. Great grind, finish, Shari out of the bag, great kydex sheath with the best locking bent attachment. I would like a third and add some scales but I need to get some other designs from SBW. Simply out get yourself one when and where you can.
