Kiridashi offers an intriguing knife option for law enforcement
Unique blade new design from Todd Begg
By Duane Wolfe
So what do you get when you cross a modern custom knife designer with a traditional Japanese bonsai pruning knife? Todd Begg's Kiridashi knife.
Begg has been a knife maker since 1998 and full-time knife maker for the last eight years. He attended machining school on the GI bill with the intent of becoming a knife maker. His custom made knives sell for thousands of dollars. His Kiridashi knife sells for $139.
Begg's years of experience in the US Army as an NBC Recon team member gave him the knowledge of what makes a good knife and what doesn’t. Begg believes a good law enforcement knife, "should perform any number of tasks with little maintenance. The steel should hold an edge well. The knife should not draw undo attention and be easily accessible. A good back up knife should be ergonomic and non-slip."
At only two ounces it will remain undetected until needed on the Kydex sheath. Begg recommends carrying it as a neck knife for easy access. However, its small design allows it to be concealed easily where ever the user chooses. A Tek-Lok can be added so the blade can be carried on a belt or attached to tactical fear.
