Direct from the Maker
This Custom Pen Knife Slipjoint by Hiroaki has beautiful hand contoured Quince wood handles
Buttery smooth action and excellent Spring Tension. Hiroaki makes the handles of his knives slim so they fit in the hand very comfortably.
The knife has stainless steel liners under the Quince handles, this allows for plenty of strength but still a very light weight.
The blade is centered and operates oh-so-smoothly, no play in any direction.
Hiroaki has added some nice Custom Filework to the back of the Spring.
The Stabilized Quince is extremely well matched and has a nice high polish to show off the natural Grain.
Hiroaki makes his own Leather Pocket Sheaths for every knife, well stitched and holds the knife securely.
This is the actual knife you will receive, top shelf fit and finish, simple yet elegant.
