Product Description

Kansei Matsuno 


Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for 
Kansei Matsuno
custom knives

Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2012

Kansei (pronounced Can-See) and I met through Shosui Takeda this year at the Blade Show, I was aware of his work but not until now did I have the chance to offer it on my website. 

This is an immaculate Small Gentleman’s Friction Folder Liner Lock.  Yep, a Friction Folder that locks open with the precision fit and finish that only a Master can offer.

The fossilized Mosaic Mastadon handles are very well matched, this is a unique material made from small pieces of 20,000 year old Mammoth Tusk surrounded by a clear hard Resin.  All the different pieces have rich contrasting colors and the overall Mosaic pattern is very unique.  

The polished exposed Pivot is a very artistic feature and allows the knife to blend between a classic style and innovative technology. Stainless liners are polished, the handle is just large enough for a Three Finger grip. 

The Satin Finished Spearpoint blade is Razor Sharp, it floats open but still has an excellent detent, the lock engages with a gentle sound and there is absolutely no play anywhere in the knife. 

If you long for a small precision folder for your desk or dress pants then this is the blade for you.  

Kansei also provides a matching Leather Pouch sheath for carrying the knife in your pocket. 

Watch for more of Kansei’s work on my site.
