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.
Blast is a fighter that illustrates Kikuo's understanding of high performance weapons. The 6 inch blade features a long blood groove. The OU-31 semi stainless steel (Kikuo's favorite blade steel) drop point blade features a high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind with a full-length swedge. Generous jimping on the spine provides a secure area for the thumb to guide the blade. A deep choil provides a sure, comfortable grip. A recurve shape ensures devastating cutting action. This knife can easily double as a heavy duty outdoor use knife.
Black G-10 scales are carved to provide a secure grip and secured to the full tang using torx screws. A lanyard can be added at the extended tang for extra retention. Blast is ready for your next 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!
