Marking Knife


The Japanese marking knife, or Kiridashi, is a simple idea refined and refined again until it approaches perfection. Most of our Kiridashi are of the single-bevel variety, with the flat back of the blade designed to ride a straight edge or ruler while the beveled edge scribes a fine line. As the side given the bevel cannot be altered by the user, please ensure you make your selection based on whether you prefer working with your left hand or your right. For those lucky enough to be ambidextrous, or who always seem to find themselves working inside out or back to front, a pair of knives may be the preferred path.
