Takeda Kogatana NAS Frame-Handle Project

These knives were forged in Japan by renowned blacksmith Shosui Takeda.  I created the handles using frame-handle construction and sheathed them.  These are wonderful little utility knives that function as well on the belt as they do in the kitchen or camp.
