The "Kanji" By Simonich Custom Knives
The Late Rob Simonich was a master custom knife maker. Rob crafted his blades with the care and precision of an artist. My experiences with the man and his work led us into collaboration on this remarkable custom blade. Rob made the first Talonite prototype of the blade, called the "Kanji",. I took it to the Amazon jungles and used it like no other knife I've had. I even loaned it to the Indians for some of their work. It looks as good today as it did the day he made it for me (though there are a few scratches on the handle now). You can see this blade performing and cleaning monkeys and other animals in our Jungle Video.
While I field tested the blade I came up with a couple of minor modifications that we incorporated into this final design. Though this blade is no longer available for sale through us the information could be of use to the outdoors men and collectors who have some of Robs Knives.
