Description: 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. Kikuo joined his father's knifemaking business at the age of 15 and learned the grinding technique from his father. Over the decades, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary. He is an avid outdoorsman with a passion for fishing, hiking, and travel.
The Donguri is high performance utility skinner. The blade is made from Kikuo’s personal favorite, OU-31 stain resistant tool steel, and features his hamaguri-ba (convex) grind. The OU-31 semi-stainless tool steel blade will have exceptional edge holding. OU-31 is a Japanese PM (powdered metallurgical) steel with micro fine crystalline structure that embodies many of the best attributes needed for knives. The steel is hardened to 64 Hrc (very hard!) and has more than 3 times the toughness of D2.
The handle scales are made from green canvas Micarta, hand carved for traction and comfort while carrying or using. Expertly placed jimping on the spine provides extra traction for the thumb. A reliable companion to depend on in any adventure!
Accompanied by a kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt clip.
