Kansei Knives F05L - D2 Steel (Custom)

East Meets West

Designed and handcrafted by Japanese custom knifemaker, Kansei Matsuno, the F05L is an impressive amalgamation of new and old, East and West. Defying boundaries and conventions, this one-of-a-kind creation is a must-have for all connoisseurs of the knife arts.

The F05L features a gorgeous hand rub, satin finished, two-tone D2 blade with a non-locking friction folder style opening. The carefully contoured handle comes in 3 variations - with only one of each - in Eucalyptus or Acacia wood and lightweight carbon fiber. 

The Eucalyptus and Acacia wood handles possess an organic warmth and beauty, while the carbon fiber variant boasts unrivalled strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and corrosion resistance.

Quietly refined and impressively crafted, the Kansei Matsuno F05L 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.
