The Sin Eater is one of our long serving Pikal models, and although it has been through a variety of updates over the years, it remains pretty true to. its origins. A longer blade, with a sleek profile and neutral grip.
The Sin Eater blade is one of our longest we make in our standard models, at a hair over 3.5″, made from thin steel stock with a single edge. The gentle inward curve gives you a lot of edge to pull through the cut with, while the blade tip remains robust despite its thinner and more lightweight frame.
The grip of the Sin Eater is very neutral, not forcing your hand into any particular orientation, while giving optimal retention through some basic ergonomics.
This is SN097. A Custom Sin Eater with a slightly shorter blade than standard, around 3.35″ in length which is finished in a Satin Antiqued Etch which gives the blade an appearance of some age. The handle is appointed with our Tsukamaki treatment. Using a polished brass liner as a base, the handle features satin polished bone fittings, with matching brass pins. An antique treated and lacquered Samegawa panel, with brown Silk Tsuka-ito wrapped on top. Our Tsukamaki is done in the traditional method using hishigami and is wrapped extremely tightly.
This Sin Eater is water stone sharpened with a 6000 grit mirror polished edge, and sheathed with a Full style Kydex Sheath that readily accepts DCC HLR IWB Clips.
