Junpei Makari is a young talented Custom Knifemaker in Fukuoka, Japan. He is an avid Hunter, Fisherman and Camper, and believes the skilled outdoor expert can create excellent and practical knives. He designs practical knives based on his field activities and tests each knife in every field situation.
He makes knives in users' mind to meet with their demands. He uses a common steel of 440C or AUS-8 for tough blades to chipping and breaking, and also easy maintenance (rust resistance and ease of re-sharpening), He is a member of Japan Knife Guild, and is attending domestic knife shows to offer his "Makkari" brand knives. JKD is pleased to introduce his knives to overseas' market.
KM-100 Combat Utility Knife: By the request of a member of Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, Junpei Makari has designed and produced this all purpose Utility knife with an emphasis on versatility that can handle various tasks, and portability and expandability of the sheath. The blade is sharpened at different angles. It has a 5-inch non-glare black coated 440C spear point blade with a slightly concaved hollow ground body and thicker grinding toward to the blade tip for strength to prevent chipping. He believes the high Carbon and high Chromium SUS440C steel is an excellent choice for the hard use knives, because of a tough resistance to chipping and breaking as well as an ease of re-sharpening. Sharp spear point with swedge on the back for penetration. 4-3/4" Hand contoured and beads blasted Black G10 handle with thumb notches on back and finger ring on end. By attaching a ring to the rear end of the handle, it can be quickly taken out of the sheath and used. The handle is thinly finished, and the shape is designed assuming the usage like holding a firearm such as a rifle or a hand gun while holding a knife. It comes with TAFBILON (Japan made material similar to Kydex) sheath covered with Camo 500D SQUADRON Cordura Nylon that has slits to attach MOLLE compatible pouches, and Malice Clip that can be attached on both sides in different angles.
JM-100TR Combat Training Knife: Same size, shape and weight as the above, but non-grinding and non-edged 440C blade for training. Beads bladed and perforated blade with mirror polished edges not to hurt bare skin when hitting. Heat treated to prevent blade from scratching when dropped on hard ground. Comes with TAFBILON (Japan made material similar to Kydex) sheath with SQUADRON Cordura Nylon and Malice Clip.
