    Handy to have around for miscellaneous projects, use for scraping in awkward angles. Blade keeps a good edge.

    Sharp Little Knife

    Comments about Duluth Trading Folding pocket knife - Japanese Carpenter Knife:

    The blade is very sharp, and I like the blade design, however, I'm not sure how strong the rivet is that holds the blade to the bolster lining.

    This is the only knife I own that does not have a set screw to secure the blade, and I wonder if it will hold up.

    The blade is made from nice stainleess, and the bolster is well made. Haven't played in the shop yet, but I hope it is as sturdy as it seems. The blade is pretty tight, but should loosen up as it is used more.

        Comments about Duluth Trading Folding pocket knife - Japanese Carpenter Knife:

        Great knife for lots of uses, but I've used it with great success to open appliance boxes. The tough corrugated boxes are no match for this knife. I lost the first one and liked it so much, I bought a second one. It's great for small odd jobs around the house, too.

                  Professional grade woodcarving tools have wood handles an easy to grip. The metal case is rough on top and designed like a box cutter. I am going to return it.

                        Too delicate for the purpose I bought it.
                        Gave it away as a present (bought it for myself) and it was received with great happiness. Will buy a more robust knife for my construction job uses.
