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 Togiak Skinner is high performance utility skinner. Kikuo developed the shape while fishing in the Togiak River in Alaska. It is a medium sized skinner that is a versatile field knife and is useful for all kinds of tasks.
The blade combines a powdered metalurgical SG2 stainless steel core with layered damascus steel on the sides. At Hrc 64, SG2 is among the highest performing steels used by Kiku Knives.
The handle scales are made from black 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!
