    The kiridashi has been done for a few weeks, but I just finished this sheath for it today. Rides tight to my body without poking my gut, just the right retention and if the leather wasn't red, you'd probably not even see it on my belt.

    That blade looks scary. I can see myself using it to clean my fingernails!

    Since I have never heard of this type of weapon, I did a search on the internet and found this:

    A Kiridashi, sometimes mispelled Kiradashi, is a japanese style blade with a chisel ground edge designed for Woodwork and Carving. In recent years, the tactical community has taken to this style of knife for concealed carry, self-defense knives. The most affordable ones are the ones from Japan made for woodworking use from laminated carbon steel.

    Most of the sellers of these kinds of knives are Custom makers as they are easy to make. They have no handles, and have a simple flat chisel grind which requires very little skill compared to most knife grinds. As self-defense knives the Kiridashi is not very useful for anything but a stabbing or piercing.

    Is there something else it needs to do?

    It's the only time I clean them. I haven't carried a pocket knife in a couple of months and my fingernails are dirty. Gross dirty.
