“CHIBI” (which means “small” in Japanese) is a variation of an everyday carry knife based on the American tanto design.
Small CHIBI is a redesigned version of the dangerous tactical YAMATO. The knife retains its best features for both utility in everyday life and conflict, but we improved the stabbing ability by lowering the point. We also added a glass breaker to the end of the handle for extreme emergencies, on the butt. The result is a compact knife with excellent cutting abilities.
The straight main cutting edge provides good slashing abilities and is convenient for use in everyday life. The blade edge consists of two separate edges and has an angled tip that creates a secondary point – this can be quite useful for opening boxes. The strong, penetrating point won’t break easily, and it has great cutting ability along the long edge.
The knife provides an excellent cutting edge that stays dangerously sharp for a long time.
No frills and maximum functionality – that’s what CHIBI is all about.
Be sure to check your local knife laws for restrictions on blade length, as that may narrow down your options.
