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 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 rich Aged Sambar Stag is perfectly matched, each side has deep gnarly character and a warm amber color. The blade floats open but still has a perfect detent, the lock engages with a soft sound and there is absolutely no play anywhere in the knife.
The Satin Finished blade is Razor Sharp. The polished exposed Pivot is a nice feature and allows the knife to blend between a classic style and innovative technology. Stainless liners are polished, the handle is large enough for a nice Three Finger grip.
If you long for a nice small precision folder for your desk or dress pants then this is the blade for you. Kansei also provides a thick Leather Pouch sheath for carrying the knife in your pocket.
Watch for more of Kansei’s work on my site soon.
