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. His father runs a small workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Kikuo joined his father's business at the age of 15 and learned grinding techniques from his father. Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Another rugged piece from Kikuo's Full Contact Series. This knife is the companion piece to the Raijin. Fujin is a God of Wind, and Raijin is a God of Thunder. This massive knife easily brings on the full power of the Wind.
The blade has a recurve V-grind plus a hamaguri-ba grind toward the blade tip and a false edge on the back. Hand contoured OD green canvas Micarta scales comprise the handle with a hand retaining paracord strap. The end of the tang comes to a very formidable point. A hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt device accompanies the knife.
