The Tokyo Toothpick


When Tokyo was known as Edo, the samurai class carried a small blade known as the kwaiken. It was used for self-defense in indoor spaces when the long blades of the katana & wakizashi were inconvenient. The kwaiken translates to bosom knife or chest knife.

Our modern take on the kwaiken is a versatile every day carry knife that has a propensity towards assisted seppuku of large game, small woodland creatures, tubers, burglars, boxes, etc. We believe it commands use in and out of the home.

The Tokyo Toothpick is cut from .17 inch 80CRV2 and has a G10 laminate handle. Comes with a black Kydex sheath and a Safe-Lock belt clip.
