Description: Renowned Japanese knifemaker Kiku Matsuda has been grinding blades for over 40 years and is a 5th generation knife grinder. His unique, dramatic grinds are well known throughout the knife industry. His father runs a small workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Kiku joined his father's business at the tender age of 15 and learned the grinding technique from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary. Whether you know it or not, you may already have a knife blade ground by him. He grinds knifes for the like of William Henry, Pro-tech, and Randall King. In fact, he personally grinds and polishes William Henry's custom grade blades.
The Honey Bee Ulri is a solid example of Kikuís utility-minded creative process. The Japanese D2 drop-point blade transitions nicely to an exposed-tang handle. Full jimping all around the handle provides comfortable, positive traction in any grip, and the OD Green G10 scales add just the right amount of girth to round out this 4-1/2 in. (OAL) compact neck knife perfect for every day carry.
