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. He joined his father's knifemaking business at 15 years old and learned grinding techniques from his father. Over the years Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary. He is an avid outdoorsman with a passion for fishing, hiking, and travel.
Matatabi is a longer version of Kikuo's renowned Kozuka utility. With its 5-1/2 inch blade, it is a practical EDC utility knife.
The blade is made from Takefu Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical damascus steel for its superior edge holding and keenness. It features his hamaguri-ba (convex) grind and a false edge along the top. The spine is filed for a secure thumb purchase.
The black canvas Micarta handle is hand contoured and set on the full tang. A lanyard hole at end of the handle makes it easy to add a lanyard if desired.
This knife is accompanied by a custom Sunloid KD acrylic-pvc sheath. A DOTS belt clip makes it easy to keep this knife close at hand.
