The Sin Eater is more than just an edgy name, it is one of our most popular knives. This is a lightweight, slimline Pikal knife designed to fit seamlessly into your every day carry. It’s also one of our most elegantly stylish, perfect for a minimalist carry.

Made from a simple high carbon steel, Bohler K460 (equivalent of O1), The Sin Eater is one of the longest Pikal knives we make, but its also the thinnest and most slimline with a blade thickness around 3.8mm or 0.15″. The slim, single edge blade results in a point that is robust yet still offers more than adequate penetration, helped by it being of reasonably thin steel for a knife of this type. The edge itself is a flat grind that has also resulted in this being one of our sharpest knives. The Sin Eater’s long blade is made to reach out and touch, and then cleave cleanly through material.

The Sin Eater has a relatively neutral handle design with adequate security for a combative knife. Although minimalist in its ergonomics, the handle ensures the point index remains neutral.

The Tier 2 Tsukamaki version gives the Sin Eater a classy look! The Tsukamaki handle is something we have worked on for many years, using traditional (and non traditional) Japanese materials and techniques to produce a modern take on the traditional Japanese sword handle. We use high quality silk and leather Ito (cord) and high grade Samegawa (ray skin) to create these exquisite pieces.

This particular Tsukamaki configuration is called “Shogun”. It features Brown Nubuck Leather Ito, wrapped over Antiqued Samegawa, with stabilised and polished bone fittings at the front and end of the handle. There is a high polished Copper liner and mosaic pins to give the handle a little extra flair. The blade in this configuration is highly polished and given a Patina etch to create an antiqued effect.

The Sin Eater comes with a full Kydex sheath for secure concealed carry and is fitted with a Discreet Carry Concepts 5.1 HLR Gear Clip as standard.
