Kansei Knives

Kansei Knives F05 - D2 Steel

Elegance Personified

Designed and handcrafted by Japanese custom knifemaker, Kansei Matsuno, the F05 is the smaller, everyday version of the robust F05L. An awe-inspiring amalgamation of new and old, East and West, the F05 impresses with its clean, elegant lines and precise craftsmanship.

The F05 features an impressive hand rubbed, satin finished, two-tone D2 blade with a non-locking friction folder style opening. The carefully contoured handle comes in 2 variations - with only one of each - in Eucalyptus wood and lightweight Carbon Fiber. 

The Eucalyptus wood handle possesses an organic warmth and beauty, while the Carbon Fiber variant boasts unrivaled strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and corrosion resistance.

Quietly refined and impressively crafted, the Kansei Matsuno F05 is a compact, lightweight and intuitively designed blade that excels in an everyday capacity. If you're looking for something highly capable and refreshingly timeless, this is the one for you.
