This is a really interesting little knife, and a really useful little knife! Kogatanas are small, handy knives for multi-purpose uses such as cutting, whittling, and some cooks use them as utility knives. Whether you want to cut a piece of trussing string or open that recently arrived package from your favorite knife company (!) this handy little utensil will be there for you.

The opening/closing action is smooth and positive. The wood handle is well finished. The blade is especially noteworthy, being made from the highly regarded Hitachi Blue #2 carbon steel. This is a most unusual choice for such a utilitarian knife, but a very welcome and intriguing one! It is a single bevel blade with a very unusual hammered pattern.

It is difficult to explain the multipurpose nature of the Okeya Folding Kogatana. But once you get your hands on one you will be surprised at how the versatility, strength, and cutting ability of this fun knife results in it being one of your go to kitchen and general home tools.

    I like this knife a lot. Great fit, good finish. There are a couple rough parts I might smooth down a bit near the hinge. I love the look of the knife, especially after I removed the decals and treated the wood with mineral oil.

    Great knife to have as a utility tool in the kitchen. I tied a shoelace to it and attach it to my belt loop to pull out of my pocket whenever I need a quick blade.

    5  Surprisingly practical, March 25, 2017

    I purchased this knife thinking that it would just be another cool folder that I could add to my EDC. However, it has proven very useful and practical especially in a kitchen. As a right handed user this knife feels like the perfect paring knife. My thumb fits perfectly into the concave side of the knife while my forefinger can rest on the unsharpened part of the blade. It feels so comfortable and I have complete control when working with small veg. prep. On my first day I used this knife for scoring fava beans and I felt like I was flying through them. Out of the box the knife isn't very sharp but once you take it to your stones this thing can get pretty sharp. It sharpens very easily too which I like. Overall I would definitely recommend it to a friend given the price point, its usefulness, and also that sort of "wow" factor when you show it to people. I think the biggest downfall to this knife is the locking mechanism. It feels awkward and slow, but it holds the blade very tightly in place. Other than that, the knife is great. One of my favorites now.

    5  Nice Utility Knife, November 19, 2016

    I picked up one of these out of curiosity as I was tired of throwing out utility knife razor blades. Out of the box, the blade seemed to be nicely ground and only required a little bit of honing to finesse the edge. The steel is relatively soft and thus sharpens quickly. Lift the blade on the hone to meet the angle on the beveled face and lay it flat on the non-beveled concave backside. Couldn't be easier.
