The Bladed Sentinel
Jared Oeser is the epitome of the modern master. Daring in design and unerringly precise in execution, he combines the best of old-world craftsmanship with new-age flair to create some of the most highly sought after custom blades today.
His iconic Tengu is designed as a nifty front flipper and is one of Jared's most sought after blades. Tengu translates to "Heavenly Sentinel" in Japanese and is a legendary creature found in ancient Japanese folklore – and this bad boy certainly lives up to its name.
Compact in the pocket yet big in hand, the Tengu features a deceptively simple yet highly ergonomic handle made from Spalted Maple – which features dark contrasting lines and streaks reminiscent of marble. Stunning specimens of Spalted Maple is not only a sight to behold and superbly durable, but also hard to get a hold of.
The star of the show is the satin-finished, compound–hollow-ground Blue San Mai tanto blade. The stunning swedge and convex-ground tip enhance strength and stability, while the straight edge works wonders at all manners of EDC tasks.
Light enough to carry anywhere and beautiful enough to never appear threatening – the Jared Oeser Tengu Front Flipper is the perfect gentleman's knife that's fit for duty in both the office and the field. If you're looking for your forever knife – this might just be it. Fair warning, Jared's masterpieces are always in high demand. So make your move now before it's gone for good.
