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 joined his father's knife grinding business at 15 years old and learned grinding techniques from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Kikuo based Ise on his legendary Ariake -- but making some changes. He changed the steel to SG2. Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel is among the best edge holding stainless steels used in Japan. At 7.3 inches, the blade is also slightly longer. A hamaguri-ba (convex ground) edge, ensures strength and durability in even the hardest tasks.
A filed thumb notch provides a secure, comfortable grip. OD green canvas Micarta scales were hand contoured.
Ise is a perfect choice for your outback adventures! It will be easy to keep close by with the hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt clip.
Exceptional work throughout!
