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 techniques from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Ryoshi-Makiri is Kiku's version of a traditional Japanese fisherman's knife. This knife has been used throughout Japan both to cut, fillet, and prepare fish while on a boat, but also to cut ropes, carve wood, and do general utility work.
The SHSS (Super Hard Stainless Steel) spear point blade features an abrupt single bevel on the right side and a hollow grind on the left. SHSS is a new steel made by Daido. It combines exceptional corrosion resistance (sometimes compared to Spyderco's H1), but is 60 Hrc, ensuring exceptional edge holding.
Carved green canvas micarta gives a tactile feel to the knife and is comfortable in any grip. A non-corroding heavy use companion built to perform no matter where your adventure takes you. Don't leave home without it! Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt clip.
