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. Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
This tanto handmade by Kiku Matsuda is a modern take on the traditional Japanese tanto. The long upswept blade is made from OU-31 semi stainless steel (Kikuo's favorite blade steel) and features a high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind with a long swedge. The blade has a non-reflective disruptive acid finish. Generous jimping on the spine provides a secure area for the thumb to guide the blade. A shallow choil provides a sure, comfortable grip.
Carved green canvas micarta gives a tactile feel to the knife and is comfortable in any grip. A companion built to perform no matter where your adventure takes you. Don't leave home without it!
