Kansei Knives LRF05S - D2 Steel w/ Acacia

East Meets West

Designed and handcrafted individually by Japanese knife-making maestro, Kansei Matsuno, the LRF05S brings together the best of the old world and new, East and West. Blurring the lines, this impressive little folder is a must-have for every discerning knife-connoisseur.

The smaller brother of the larger F05L, the LRF05S features a 2.62", satin-finish, hand-rubbed, D2 blade with a non-locking friction folder style opening. Another significant difference is that the LRF05S comes with a nifty pocket clip, which is uncommon on a Kansei Matsuno knife.

The ergonomically contoured handle is made from Acacia wood, which is a durable hardwood that can withstand the elements and is commonly-used in boat-making, while the full stainless steel liners add strength and structure.

Quietly refined and impressively crafted, the Kansei Matsuno LRF05S is a compact, lightweight and highly functional blade that shines in an EDC capacity. If you’re looking for something that offers up the best of both worlds – this one is made for you.
