The blade is easy to open with the 'chikiri' (the small lever on the end of the blade). As is traditional, this type of knife does not have a locking system en disappears entirely into the handle when closed. The blade is slightly curved and has a rough finish at the top. This strengthens the traditional feel of the knife. The steel is hand-forged and very hard. You can sharpen the carbon steel razor sharp yourself.
