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 knife grinding business at the age of 15 and learned 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 Kiku Knives EDC Neck Knife is an amazing knife! Kikuo built this knife light and fast to make it easy to keep close by. The blade is formed from an OU-31 san mai (OUS). It combines an OU-31 stain resistant tool steel core with AUS-6 stainless steel cladding. 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 blade is a broad drop point with a high performing hamagui-ba grind. It is finished with Kikuo's non-reflective acid finish.
Textured black G10 handle scales are set on a full tang for strength and durability. It is completed with a lanyard hole. A reliable companion to depend on in any adventure!
Accompanied by a custom Kydex neck sheath.
