A simple and unique friction folder, carved with the makers' name
The Yaku Saku, designed by Jacques Brinon, is a unique friction folder, a conversation piece for anyone that also happens to be extremely useful. Unlike most folding knives this one comes with a sturdy leather belt sheath, keeping the knife out of your pocket and out of the way. Being a folder though means the sheath is small than wearing a fixed blade knife and much less conspicous.
The knife is opened with both hands and held open by the large tang extension. A thumb stud acts as a blade stop that nestles into a groove in the grip. The blade is hand forged AISI420 stainless steel and is thin with a relatively short bevel, giving the knife a nice working edge for any number of tasks.
A high quality full grain leather belt sheath is included as well as a padded nylon canvas pouch with embroidered Citadel logo.
