Description: Renowned Japanese knifemaker Kiku 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. His father runs a small workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Kiku joined his father's business at the age of 15 and learned grinding technique from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
This piece is as impressive as its name suggests. Deceptively nimble for its size, the Mega Power Utility combines the versatility of a machete with the cutting efficiency reminiscent of a kukri in one tool. The 11 inch blade features OU-31 tool steel (Kiku’s favorite steel) and a hamaguri-ba (convex) grind. A nicely rounded and contoured black micarta grip completes this refined 17-1/4 inch brute. Whether blazing trails through dense jungle, opening a felled log to get at the dry inner core, or just making some kindling, the Mega Power Utility is capable and tough enough for any situation.
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
