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. 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 Yamasemi is handmade by Kikuo and shows his skill at its best. It has a massive blade with a 1/3 inch thick spine! The OU-31 tool steel blade will have exceptional edge holding. OU-31 is a Japanese semi-stainless PM (powdered metallurgical) steel with micro fine crystalline structure that embodies many of the best attributes needed for knives. The steel is hardened to 64 Hrc (very hard!) and has more than 3 times the toughness of D2. The blade features Kiku's high performance Hamaguri (convex) grind with a non-reflective disruptive acid finish.
The thumb ramp is textured for a secure grip. The slip resistant canvas Micarta handle is carved and set on the substantial full tang. The handle is completed with a lanyard hole.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt clip.
With its behemoth blade, the Yamasemi is a perfect choice for heavy use in the outdoors or any other situation that requires diplomacy.
