This pikal edition of the SAF has a reverse edge. The blade is made from 3V and DLC coated with a carbidized edge. The SAF pushes the limits for extreme cutting power in a compact package.

Ban Tang is at his best designing small concealable fixed blades that perform far greater than their size. The SAF is no exception, coming in at less than 3 ounces in the hand while still offering a full grip. The profile is reminiscent of a Persian, but with a shorter overall height and acute point and reverse edge. The handle is contoured and wrapped to positively lock the knife in hand despite the reduced footprint. Ease of carry make this an around the clock companion, able to both see you through the mundane and keep pace when life turns you down a dark alley. Ultra-light and astonishingly sharp are vast understatements.

The SAF is made of 3V and features a convex ground edge for impressively clean, razor-sharp cuts. A thin, flat blade keeps the knife fast and light to work with. The full size, resin-soaked cord wrapped handle offers exemplary grip. A user configurable sheath is compatible with small Tek-Loks, soft loops with Pull-The-DOT snaps, or shock cord carry.

Minimalist design and lightweight build allow the Ban Tang SAF to serve as an ever-present concealable guardian.

Behind the Scenes with Ban Tang

Ban Tang has always been captivated by sharp edges, a trait that lay the foundation for his distinctive style and has since been echoed through all of his creations. Completely self taught, he began making knives professionally in 2007 and has since refined his approach as he's grown as knifemaker. He believes a knife's principle function, to cut well, should never be sacrificed. He strives to perfect this as closely as possible with each of his designs, resulting in precise knives with balanced edge geometry and razor sharp blades like you've never seen before.
