Description: Renowned Japanese knifemaker Kikuo Matsuda has been grinding blades for over 40 years and is a 5th generation knife grinder. He was born in Seki in 1951. 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.
The blade combines an SG2 stainless steel blade with layered damascus steel on the sides. Kikuo's grind shows off the linear damascus pattern beautifully. SG2 is one of the highest performing stainless steels in the world. A hamaguri-ba (convex) grind ensures a super-keen, long lasting edge.
The black G10 handle is hand sculpted and set on the full tang for strength and durability. A lanyard can be easily attached to the handle for added security. The knife is equally comfortable to hold in both a standard grip and when using the choil in the blade while choking up for detail oriented tasks.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip.
Exceptional work throughout!
