Spyderco’s Kazuyuki Sakurai-Designed ‘Pochi’ Is A Tiny Titanium EDC Knife

May 7, 2020

Category: Gear

Spyderco is no stranger to the realm of the collaborative effort, and over the years, a large portion of the brand’s most notable knives have been created and designed alongside industry greats. For its most recent collection, the outfit has teamed up with Kazuyuki Sakurai, an iconic Japanese craftsman whose dog-shaped knives have made him a household name among custom aficionados.

The Spyderco x Kazuyuki Sakurai “Pochi” knife is an interesting take on the architecture of a traditional production folder, integrating specialized traits like a hollow-ground CPM S45VN blade, Reeve Integral Lock system, and an anodized folding tail to create something a bit different from the models that we see on a day-to-day basis. It’s also been outfitted with a titanium pocket clip, pivot-pin accent, and a bead-blasted titanium handle, allowing it to remain relatively compact – courtesy of its 1.56-inch blade. The best part? The 1.7-ounce wonder looks just like a dog when it’s in its locked position. Head to Spyderco’s website to pick up one of your own for $270.
