The more I use the Kiridashi the more I am liking it. I’ve had this a little over a month now and it is small enough to carry in the mesh pocket of my phone case so I can still carry something bigger in my pocket. At first it was not so impressive but after I thinned the edge out a bit it really is a solid performer. The steel is 4034SS which I actually know nothing about atm but it seems to be on par with my 4116 CS knives. My only issue with it is the clip is on the wrong side.
