It's compact in size but still big on attitude. The Obake Skoshi everyday carry knife has the same uniquely etched blade, cord wrapped ray-skin style handle and cool factor as its larger cousin. Proof once again that looks can be deceiving.
Designed by Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, NM, the Obake Skoshi is an artful combination of a classic knife style built with modern-day materials and techniques. It's another example of Burnley's belief that knives are a personal expression of independence. And this one makes a statement when you bring it out for action.
A throwback to a classic Japanese design, it features a full tang fixed blade with a unique gray titanium nitride finish that's acid-etched to give each knife a distinct look. It's like he made the blade exclusively for you to throw down when the need for utility comes up.
The handle has a Katana style nylon cord wrap over a black faux ray-skin for an exceptional and secure all-weather grip. When storms or trouble are brewing, you'll be ready.
The sheath of the Obake is made from glass-reinforced nylon that provides consistent retention even in humid environments. A paracord lanyard on the sheath is designed to attach to your belt loop and keep the sheath in place when you deploy the knife. A skull bead adds a not-so-subtle accent to the paracord lanyard.
The Obake Skoshi isn't looking for work, but it's ready to show up looking like a boss when it's time to get the job done.
