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. Kikuo joined his father's knife grinding studio at 15 years old and learned grinding techniques from his father. Over the years, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Murakumo is a large, rugged camp knife. It sure to get the task done, whether in the wilderness or the urban jungle. A hamaguri-ba (convex) grind ensures a keen, high performing edge with plenty of strength behind it. The recurve shape extends the length of the cutting edge beyond the overall length of the blade and enhances cutting efficiency. The san mai (three layer) blade has nickel damascus sides surrounding a central Takefu Super Gold 2 core. This stainless steel has some of the best edge holding found anywhere.
An ergonomically sculpted and hand contoured black G-10 grip completes this refined 7.8 inch blade. The finger choil provides a non-slip grip, even when hands get wet. Adding a paracord lanyard can provide an even stronger grip. This bold design is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a tough, dependable knife in a large format that will stand up to the rigors of everyday use.
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!
