Master craftsman Kansei Matsuno has been making knives since 1992. His ability to combine Japanese style elements with features of modern pocket knives is a fresh take on everyday carry. And that freshness is on full display in the Wasabi: a 7-inch gentleman’s slipjoint with modern materials. Crafted with a 2.9-inch 440C stainless steel blade, the Wasabi is small enough to take anywhere with ease, but large enough to handle most daily cutting tasks. Deploying the blade is smooth as butter thanks to the front flipper, which is jimped throughout for a steady grip. The handle comes in your choice of three different materials: G-10, cocobolo wood, or carbon fiber. Slim and straight, it has all the flavor of a classic Japanese sword, but packed down into a portable frame. Also notable is the narrow pocket clip for tip-down carry.
Note: At checkout, choose between G-10, cocobolo wood (+ $8), and carbon fiber (+ $18). Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries.
