The stylish handle on the knife is hand crafted out of black canvas-micarta, an odorless, enormously durable material made of resin and linen that will last decades. It is so easy to grip and it’s weight is very well balanced.
Please be noted that the stock of Saji Knives is extremely limited. Very sorry for the inconvenience.
