Product Description

Made in Cambodia by Dominique Eluere. Citadel products are handmade knife by highly skilled workers... New in the original packaging.

"Due to manufacturer's MAP, (Minimum Advertised Price), policy we cannot publish a price below the MSRP price. Please call us for any available sales, or price reductions.".

DESCRIPTION:

A simple and unique friction folder is carved with the makers' name. The Yaku Saku, a unique friction folder designed by Jacques Brinon, is a conversation piece for anyone that also happens to be extremely useful. Unlike most folding knives this one comes with a sturdy leather belt sheath, keeping the knife out of your pocket and out of the way. Being a folder though means that the sheath is small than wearing a fixed blade knife and much less conspicuous.
(Photo colors may not match the actual colors)

 

Special Note:

The knife can be opened with both hands and held open by the large tang extension. A thumb stud acts as a blade stop that nestles into a groove in the grip. The blade is hand forged from AISI420 stainless steel and thin with a relatively short bevel, giving the knife a nice working edge for any number of tasks. A high-quality full-grain leather belt sheath is included as well as a padded nylon canvas pouch with embroidered Citadel logo.

    The Art of Japanese Style Sword Making

    The forging of a Japanese sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


    Each blade typically took many days or weeks and was considered a sacred art, traditionally accompanied by a large panoply of Shinto religious rituals. As with many complex endeavors, rather than a single craftsman, several artists were involved. There was a smith to forge the rough shape, often a second smith (apprentice) to fold the metal, a specialist polisher, and even a specialist for the edge itself. Often, there were a sheath, hilt, and tsuba specialists as well.


    Blades were often forged with different profiles, different blade thicknesses, and varying amounts of grind. Wakizashi and tant were not simply a scaled-down katana; they were often forged without a ridge (hira-zukuri) or other such forms which were found on the katana.


    Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans; some pursue the traditional methods while others apply modern tools, techniques, and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods. Le's remember that steel-making was imported into Japan from China, via Korea. The steel used in the Chinese swords, called "chi-kang" (combined steel), was similar to pattern welding, and edges of it were often forge-welded to a back of the soft iron, or "jou thieh." In trying to copy the Chinese method, the ancient Japanese smiths paid much attention to the various properties of steel and worked to combine them to produce an internal macro-structure that would provide a similar combination of hardness and toughness.


    Citadel Knives and Swords

    Born in France in 1951, Dominique Eluere settled in Cambodia in 1997. Shortly after arriving in the country, he founded Citadel workshop offering hand-crafted knives and swords. Within only a few years, he became recognized and respected by knife enthusiasts worldwide for his beautifully stylish, razor-sharp creations. Demand is so great that Citadel now employs 50 people in Phnom Penh to produce unique hand-forged knives and swords according to traditional artisanal methods. High carbon steel blades receive differential quenching that produces visible Hamon, and obviously, a long life cutting edge.


    Citadel uses modern steels, high-end natural materials and a lot of skilled hand work to craft exceptional knives. For the first time in many years, Citadels line of knives is available in North America. Citadel's knives combine imported European steels with the highest quality grip materials to create unique working knives at a custom level fit and finish, for far below that sticker price. Many of Citadel's fans were introduced to them through their exceptional samurai swords, only to find later their devotion to high-quality knives. There is a lot of crossover in the traditions as well, evidenced by the unique ray skin covered knife scales and traditional Japanese method of differentially hardened blades.


    • Citadel Folding Knives - Folding knives by Citadel use Bohler's high carbon N690Co stainless steel for their blades. This high-end stainless steel combined with a variety of premium scale materials (Bone, Horn, Rosewood, Palisander -- even Rayskin!) makes for an exceptional knife. A padded and zippered embroidered pouch is included with each knife.
    • Fixed Knives - Citadel hand forges high-carbon DNH7 steel then, using the techniques learned from decades of making exceptional samurai swords, differentially hardens each blade to make a fine working knife. High-quality leather sheaths and high-end scale materials complete the package.
