The Lucas Burnley–designed Obake Fixed Blade is based on a short-range combat and household knife used in Ancient Japan. Shaped like a samurai sword—only shorter—it offers exceptional piercing power and slicing ability. The blade is made from 8Cr14MoV stainless steel, which is easy to sharpen and corrosion resistant. It features an acid-etched TiNitride pattern for a nice complement to the black, paracord-wrapped handle. Also notable is the handle’s ray skin pattern, which peeks through the gaps in the lanyard like bubbly ooze. Weighing just 2.4 ounces, the Obake is easy to carry in the included glass-filled nylon sheath.
Note: Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
Always fascinated by the wilderness, stories of survival, and action movies, Lucas Burnley decided to make his passion a reality in 2003 when he founded Burnley Knives. With the bulk of his experience derived from trial and error, Burnley has earned a reputation as a reliable craftsman by combining elements of classic knives with an emphasis on modern materials. “To me knives are a personal expression of independence and self reliance,” he says. “Starting with raw materials, I’m able to create intrinsically useful and aesthetically pleasing tools and objects of pride that can be used and passed down for generations.”
