KNSNF09W: Custom F09 Friction Folder, Wood
Kansei Matsuno Custom Knives
The Kansei F09 Friction Folder is your next go-to EDC tool. It's a non-locking folding design from Kansei Matsuno that is just the right size and a pleasant knife to hold and to use. It features an extended blade tang which fits down into the handle and prevents it from closing during use. The ergonomic handle feels great in the hand thanks to its slim nature and rock-solid construction, even though it does not lock. It's a gentlemen's folder you can use every day and includes a black leather slip pouch.
The blade is made from D2 tool steel with a hand rubbed satin two-tone finish. There is no pocket clip on this model but it does come with a small paracord lanyard from Kansei Matsuno. We love the blade to handle ratio this knife possesses as it gives you a lot of cutting power in a compact, lightweight package. This is a simple folding knife design with superior materials and excellent ergonomics for a nice utility blade that you will look forward to using each and every time you do.
