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, Japan in 1951. His unique, dramatic grinds are well known throughout the knife industry. Kikuo joined his father's knife grinding business at 15 years old and learned grinding techniques from his father. Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Buster Blade G is handmade and shows Kikuo's skill at his best. This large fighter is surprisingly nimble for its size. The blade is SG2 san mai damascus which provides the best edge holding of Kikuo's knives. A central bar of Takefu SG2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel is surrounded by alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel. The linear damascus reveals Kiku's complex, super-clean hand grind. The long, recurve blade features Kiku's high performance Hamaguri (convex) grind.
Black G-10 handle scales are secured to the full tang using torx screws. Retaining camo paracord and thumb notches ensure a secure grip. The Buster Blade G is a dependable companion to rely on in any adventure!
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.
Exceptional work throughout!
