The Shinobi Series encompasses some of our simplest Defensive Knives and tools, with the Shinobi Sakura being one of our new minimalist tsukamaki offerings for 2024. These small, simple and practical Defensive EDC Knives pack a lot into an affordable package.
The Sakura has always been our smallest Pikal. Without a doubt our favourite style of knife for defensive use, the Sakura is small enough to be incredibly light weight and concealable, with enough to do some serious damage to a would be attacker. The blade is free hand ground from 80Crv2 blade stock giving it great toughness and durability, with a single Pikal edge which has been ground to a fine edge. The blade is finished with our Matte black Cerakote option making it relatively maintenance free.
The handle of the Shinobi Sakura is small, designed to fit fully in the hand, but this also makes it great for those with smaller hands. The compact size of the Sakura, measuring overall at just 6.5″, makes it easy to conceal carry and comfortable for all day EDC. The handle of the Shinobi Shrike is given a simple Tsukamaki wrap, with a base layer of Micro Cord, wrapped with Tsukaito available in a few different colours. The handle is also resin sealed for durability.
The Shinobi Sakura is sheathed with a fold over index sheath which can be mounted wither IWB or OWB with either Discreet Carry Concepts Mod 2.1 HLR clips, or Soft Loops, but can accept many other mounts as well.
The Shinobi Sakura is a perfect choice for those who are looking for a small, discreet EDC Defensive Knife that can do enough damage to get you out of a tight spot.
