Pohan does not make many Fixed blades today as his Folders have gotten extremely popular. I custom ordered this traditional Japanese Kwaiken from Pohan and am very excited about how it turned out, this is my personal favorite pattern from Po.   

Crafted from a single 3/16″ thick piece of A2 steel, the blade is an assertive 1  1/4″ Wide and it has a Razor Sharp Double Ground edge.  

The Double Custom Top Bevels and two sets of Thumb Ridges help reduce the forward weight. 

The handle is wrapped in a thick single piece of African Salt Water Crocodile Skin and then a traditional Japanese Cord Wrap is added on top of the skin.  The Cord is soaked in a natural resin prior to wrapping so that when dried it is durable and provides plenty of texture to insure a positive grip in any situation.  

  The Custom Ordered options and the Brass Dragon Menuki on this particular knife elevate the knife to an almost display quality piece, but Pohan makes his knives to be used!  

    Pohan also provides a clean custom molded Kydex sheath with each knife. 

  Amazing knife for the price!
