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.
The Azami is based on the traditional kwaiken design popular in Japan. This knife is a perfect concealed carry knife and will make an exceptional utility blade for daily cutting chores.
The blade combines an SG2 stainless steel core with layered damascus steel on the sides. Kikuo's grind shows off the 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.
Black canvas Micarta scales are hand carved and set on a full tang with torx screws. Lanyard can be easily attached to the handle for added security.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip.
Exceptional work throughout!
