Ritsu Maruyama RM-30 "DESK DAGGER" RWL-34 Powder steel blade

Availability: Normally ships the same day



In 2008, some of the knife authorities in Seki formed the "Seki Challengers Knife Club" to train and impart traditional Seki knife making techniques and knowledge to young Seki knife craftsmen. There are now 15 club members, who gather once a month. They all work at Seki knife factories, and are challenged to make their own knives after work and at weekends.

JKD is trying to support and encourage them by introducing their knives for sale. Here are some of the latest knives received:


Mr. Ritsu Maruyama is a talented and aggressive young knife maker working at Hattori Hamono and is an apprentice to the Grand Master Ichiro Hattori. He likes to make tactical knives and he pays attention to the details to ensure a perfect fit and finish. Since his time is limited to after work and weekends, he can only make one or two knives each year. Last year, we introduced his first knife, the Sub-Hilt Fighter and Little Fighter", which quickly sold out. As a knife maker in training, he devotes tremendous time to making each knife, perfecting the finish and ignoring profitability. 

This is an elegant Desk Dagger, with a wooden stand, can be used as a letter opener!  The 5-1/4" Dagger style blade is made from Satin brushed RWL-34 Powder steel, which is equivalent to ATS-34 (RWL is named after Robert W.
