The handles have a file-worked finish, and are sealed with three layers of baked-on urushi lacquer, a unique feature.

Blade length: 3" (75mm)
Blade width: 9/16" (14mm)
Handle length: 3 1/2" (90mm)
Total length when open: 6 1/2" (165mm)

Back story:
Most of my work takes days, if not weeks to complete, and every time I would finish a project I would spend some time considering the next project. This is not an efficient way of working.
I decided to make these folders for two reasons: I would always have a knife or two ready to be carved, and carry a cheaper line of knives for those who want one of my folding knives but can not afford the higher end carved items.

In terms of finish, these knives have finished using the same techniques as my more expensive knives with carved handles.
