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 the grinding technique from his father. Over the years Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary. He is an avid outdoorsman with a passion for fishing, hiking, and travel.
Kiku designed the Shu-Fu to be an all purpose utility knife. The blade is made from Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical damascus steel for its superior edge holding and keenness. The blade features a high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind with a raised swedge. Kikuo's grind shows off the damascus pattern beautifully.
Handle scales are made from green canvas Micarta he carved for traction and comfort while carrying or using. Expertly placed jimping on the spine and a deep choil provides a perfect range of grips, secure even when wearing gloves.
Shu-fu is a reliable companion to depend on in any serious adventure!
