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 learned grinding techniques working in his father's workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Over the years, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The blade is san mai featuring a core steel of SG2 stainless steel with stainless steel cladding. Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel is among the best edge holding stainless steels made in Japan. Aggressive jimping along the spine and a choil provides excellent control.
Black-G10 handle scales are sculpted to provide a slip resistant grip and secured to the full tang using torx screws. The lanyard setup makes the knife difficult to drop by accident if breaking down fish on a boat or near the riverbed. This knife is sure to be a favorite carry regardless if fishing for the day or taking a stroll in a crowded city.
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!
