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.
Also, this example has a more rare SpearPoint blade.
The rich Curly Maple is perfectly matched, each side has deep color and lots of grain. Almost looks like an Old Map. The blade floats open but still has a perfect detent, the lock engages with a gentle sound and there is absolutely no play anywhere in the knife.
The Satin Finished blade is Razor Sharp. 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 large enough for a 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.
