Yoshihiko Akimoto is a third-generation knifesmith in Seki/Japan. The family-owned business Red Orca was founded by his grandfather Yoshiharu Akimoto (born 1896), and has since then fabricated forged blades for various applications. The Ken-Nata is intended as a universal tool for outdoor use and functions equally well as a small machete and as a larger camp or hunting knife. A core is formed by forging together classic Japanese Shirogami-2 steel (white paper steel, not stainless) with softer side layers, thus giving the blade flexibility and durability in spite of its high hardness. The blade on the Ken-Nata is given a bellied grind down to zero without a distinct cutting edge, thus combining excellent sharpness with durability. The handle and sheath are traditionally fabricated from wood. Whereas the handle wrap is secured with resin, the sheath has a removable leather belt loop. The Ken-Nata is therefore by no means a true vitrine or collector's item, but instead represents a premium utility knife that vividly embodies the century-old Japanese forging craft in a modern day rendition.

Red Orca

Yoshihiko Akimoto is a knife maker in the third generation from Seki in Japan. The family business Red Orca was established by his grandfather who was born in 1896 and since then high quality forged blades for different uses are being manufactured.
