I made another one off, custom version of the Shard Kwaiken knife:

custom kwaiken knife

With a symmetrical progressive V - grind and a well thought-out handle, the Bladetricks Shard is an elegant collectible knife with a strong piercing tip and a long slicing cutting edge.

A kwaiken or kaiken (Jap. 懐剣, meaning bosom knife) is a 20 - 25 cm (8–10 in) long, single (or rare double-edged) knife without ornamental fittings worn by Samurai men and women in Japan, a kind of short version of the Tanto. All wives of a Samurai class man were expected to carry one. It was carried in the inside pocket of a kimono sleeve or inside the lapel. The kwaiken was used for grooming tasks, cutting loose threads or string, and in an emergency, self defense and it is considered the equivalent of the Scottish Sgian Dubh.
