    Description: Patterned after the short tantos the Japanese Samurai traditionally carried as a companion blade to their Katanas, Barry’s Kogai (pronounced Koh-guy) is designed to serve you well not only as a compact and versatile fighter but as an all around field knife as well. Streamlined and efficient, the blade has a top bevel for balance and easy penetration, and is hollow ground to a razor fineness on the edge. The Kogai features Barry's Japanese Interlocking Wrap handle, underlaid with genuine Stingray skin.

    About the Dawson hamon or "hardline": This tempering method was developed and perfected by Barry over many years, based on traditional Japanese heat-treating methods as well as the utilization of modern tools, technological advancements and more than 40 years of knifemaking experience. It produces a very hard cutting edge, (visible on the darker "hardline") with a softer back (the lighter area along the spine of the blade) to absorb shock and resist chipping or breaking.

    Overall: 9.5"
