It’s compact in size but still big on attitude. The Obake™ Skoshi everyday carry knife has the same uniquely etched blade, cord wrapped ray-skin style handle and cool factor as its larger cousin. Proof once again that looks can be deceiving. Designed by Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, NM, the Obake™ Skoshi is an artful combination of a classic knife style built with modern-day materials and techniques. It’s another example of Burnley’s belief that knives are a personal expression of independence. And this one makes a statement when you bring it out for action. A throwback to a classic Japanese design, it features a full tang fixed blade with a unique gray titanium nitride finish that’s acid-etched to give each knife a distinct look. It’s like he made the blade exclusively for you to throw down when the need for utility comes up. The handle has a Katana style nylon cord wrap over a black faux ray-skin for an exceptional and secure all-weather grip. When storms or trouble are brewing, you’ll be ready. The sheath of the Obake™ is made from glass-reinforced nylon that provides consistent retention even in humid environments. A paracord lanyard on the sheath is designed to attach to your belt loop and keep the sheath in place when you deploy the knife. A skull bead adds a not-so-subtle accent to the paracord lanyard. The Obake™ Skoshi isn’t looking for work, but it’s ready to show up looking like a boss when it’s time to get the job done.
