HallMark Cutlery™ presents their Bad Blood™ dual custom collaboration with Sean Kendrick and David Mosier.
Kodak, TN — HallMark Cutlery is eager to announce their dual custom collaboration with Sean Kendrick and David Mosier. The premier knife makers join forces on a joint project, Yokai (BB0122KM). Yokai is the second collaboration between Kendrick & Mosier. Yokai is the first factory production model of a double custom collaboration project. Yokai features a 4” modified tanto blade and is 5-1/2” closed length. The handle is a coyote brown, textured G10, designed for extra grip and traction. The ergonomics of the handle really lock in your hand. The extended flipper trigger adds an ease of access and easy firing.
“David and I like working together; we bring out the best in each other. It’s a fun experience to work beside one of my best friends. It is always a positive experience to create an awesome product, that is uniquely each of our styles,” says Kendrick.
Mosier states “I met Sean a few years back at the Blade show and we hit it off from the start. Our ideas on what make a great knife seem to match up every time, and when we work together in his shop, or mine, there is an amazing cohesiveness. I consider Sean one of my best friends.” Estimated MSRP is $69.99. Delivery for the Yokai is expected June 2013
