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 the grinding technique from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Angler II was originally designed as an all-around utility knife for Kiku's many fishing trips. Starting with a distal tapered, D2 semi-stainless steel drop-point blade, Kiku crafted an easy to carry knife with great edge holding and comfortable ergonomics. Classic Kiku disruptive acid etched finish completes the easily recognized styling of this piece. Jimping on the spine provides a secure area for the thumb to rest and guide the blade. The expertly placed choil is positioned to provide a secure grip that is non-fatiguing with extended field use.
G10 scales are overlaid onto an exposed tang enhancing both retention and control as the hand naturally feels where the edge is oriented at all times. The pommel features an oval lanyard hole. A perfect choice for all your cutting tasks whether in the office, field or stream.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with IWB snap belt loop .
