Barton Knives

fixed blade Setogiwa

Let me start by saying that this is the knife that I carry. I designed it to be an elegant EDC with a very sharp blade.
I make this one out of 1095 high carbon steel, I do this for two reasons. one is that nothing takes an edge like properly heat treated 1095 and with 1095 I can achieve the beautiful Hamon that you see in the blade. This Hamon comes from the spine of the blade being covered with clay when I quench the blade, this makes the spine soft and the edge hard creating a tough knife. the Hamon line you see is the line of delineation between the hard and softer steel.

I make this knife in three sizes. the small knife is a three finger knife for men with average size hands, the medium one is about three fingers if you have large hands. the large size is a full size knife but can still be carried in public, it has a 3.5" blade.

This is what a small setogiwa looks like, I may use a photo of a different knife to display what the handle looks like.
