Description: The Wakaba EDC Utility was first introduced over 10 years ago. It is now back with a premium M390 stainless steel blade and stacked G10 handle.
Renowned Japanese knifemaker Kikuo 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. He learned grinding techniques working in his father's workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Over the years, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Bohler M390 stainless steel blade will have exceptional edge holding. M390 takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powdered metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. It features Kikuo's high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind along with his non-reflective disruptive acid finish. He designed this knife as the perfect EDC utility.
The handle provides a superior, non-grip finish. Stacked G10 is hand contoured and set on the tang for strength and durability.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with belt clip. Exceptional work throughout!
