This super-compact utility blade that can be used for a variety of things, from opening mail to small scale carving projects. We like it for scoring a line prior to making a cut with a handsaw. 

Popular with students in Japan, this thin-bladed kasaya marking knife is tightly wrapped in a thin folded brass sheet. The blade is covered with a cleverly designed sheath with one side sprung so that it stays in place securely.

The blade is made from Japanese high carbon spring steel strip, it takes a very acceptable edge and is easy to sharpen. Brass will patina with time naturally deepening the metal to become a dark bronze. 

Dimension: 5" H x .625" W
