Blade Options

Your Custom Ratón starts here! Configure your choices for Blade Steel, Finish and Edge Configuration. Steel choices will determine Finishing Options. Other steels are available on request.

  • Blade Steel *

  • Blade Finish - 80Crv2 *

    80Crv2 can be finished in a variety of different ways.

  • Blade Finish - Magnacut *

    CPM Magnacut is a modern stainless blade steel that will benefit from coatings like Cerakote, or a simple Bead Blasted Satin Finish.

Handle Type

Tsukamaki handles are separated into two Categories: Practical and Elite. Practical Handles are comprised of simpler materials and finishes for the more practically oriented. Elite Handles offer more variety in terms of Material and Finishing levels, allowing you to create a more finely tuned heirloom knife. These handles require many more hours of hand work to construct and finish, and represent our most exquisite offering.

  • Handle Type *

  • Handedness *

    The Handedness determines which side of the handle the Tsukamaki begins. Traditionally the wrap is started on the Omote side of the handle, which faces outward when worn.

Handle Materials

  • Practical Tsukamaki Base *

    Tsukamaki Handles are built upon a base Liner. The Liner in our Practical Tsukamaki Series is finished to match the Handle Fittings.

  • Elite Tsukamaki Base *

    Tsukamaki Handles are built upon a base Liner. Elite Tsukamaki Liners can be finished Polished or Antiqued / Anodised.

  • Practical Tsukamaki Fittings *

    All Practical Tsukamaki Handle fittings are finished by hand and to a high satin finish. Exact Colours and Grains of Fitting Materials will be discussed during the Meeting Phase of your Custom Order.

  • Elite Tsukamaki Fittings *

    All Elite Tsukamaki Handle fittings are made and finished by hand. Exact Colours and Grains of Fitting Materials will be discussed during the Meeting Phase of your Custom Order.

  • Practical Tsukamaki Samegawa *

    Samegawa panels are made from premium quality raw-hide sting ray skin that is lacquered in-house.

  • Elite Tsukamaki Samegawa *

    Samegawa panels are made from premium quality large node raw-hide sting ray skin that is polished and lacquered in-house. Emperor Node panels are rare, hence the increased price. The Emperor Node panel is applied to the Omote side of the handle.

  • Practical Tsukaito *

    Our Tsukamaki is completed with premium quality Silk or Leather Tsukaito imported from Japan. Exact Colour options will be discussed in the Meeting Phase of your order. By Default our Tsukamaki is not resin stabilised as it can discolour and change the texture of the Ito. Stabilising is available for Silk Tsukaito on request.

  • Elite Tsukaito *

    Our Tsukamaki is completed with premium quality Silk or Leather Tsukaito imported from Japan. Exact Colour options will be discussed in the Meeting Phase of your order. By Default our Tsukamaki is not resin stabilised as it can discolour and change the texture of the Ito. Stabilising is available for Silk Tsukaito on request.

  • Only Check this box if you want your Tsuka Stabilized. We make every attempt to preserve colour as best we can but some discolouration is to be expected.

  • Elite Tsukamaki Extras *

    Optional Elite Tsukamaki Extras include a nod to the traditional central handle pin seen on Japanese Sword Handles called a Mekugi. We can also add Menuki underneath the cord wrap. Either traditional Menuki in various themes, or abstract menudo crafted in house can be applied to the side of the handle facing the palm.

Sheath & Mounting

Below you can choose the parameters of your Sheath and Mounting preferences.

  • Sheath Type *

    We offer two basic Sheath Types. An Adjustable and Non-Adjustable Retention Sheath. If you are unsure we recommend the Adjustable Retention Sheath as it allows you to fine-tune the weight of your draw.

  • Kydex Option *

    We typically use Black or FDE Kydex for our sheaths, but other colours may be available on request. Soft Lined Kydex adds a suede like inner lining to the sheath which can provide protection to polished blades and handle components.

  • Mounting *

    Please tell us how you intend to carry your knife. Our Sheaths can be fitted with either IWB Clips or OWB Soft Loops, and we provide one of these options with your knife. If you are unsure of which you want that's no problem. We can talk you though this during the Meeting Phase of your Custom Build.

Optional Extras

There are a couple of optional extras you can add to your Custom Shrike Order...

  • Japanese Water Stone Sharpening *

    Our Standard Machine Sharpening is perfectly adequate for a working knife. But you can take your knife to the next level by adding a Japanese Water Stone treatment. We will hone your blade to a mirror polished 6000 grit edge that will glide effortlessly though whatever it meets.

  • Add a Blunt Trainer *

    If you wish to practice with your knife, we can create a matching Blunt Trainer that mimics the blade style, handle type, sheath and mount. Trainer Blades are made from Steel and Cerakote Finished for durability.
