Description: The Shinobi Dagger is an exclusive BladeGallery.com design. Steve based the design on a weapon used in Ninjutsu. As is traditional, this knife was either used as a dagger or threaded through the hole and used as a hurled/swinging weapon. The purple ray skin and resin impregnated wrap gives an excellent grip in the hand. The hamon is the result of the traditional Japanese method of clay tempering which retains the resilience of the spine while hardening the edges for superior sharpness. Steve's knives are well tested in the field and are extremely well executed.
Only the first 25 knives of a design are numbered by Steve. This is the first of this design and is numbered "0".
