Ashi Hamono general-all-purpose utility outdoor knife. Swedish stainless steel blade measuring 3" and from end-to-end 8"with half finished monkey slipper wood. Includes leather sheath with belt loop.
Ashi Hamono was established in 1948 in Sakai City Japan; a major center of traditional knife making. Ashi makes knives utilizing a one piece of steel (rather than forge laminated 2/3 layer blade), called zenkou construction. Ashi’s Ginga line is famous for it’s thinness and precision, utilizing top quality carbon and stainless steels. These knives have an excellent fit and finish, from their grinding to heat treatment and hafting.
