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 ran 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. Over the years, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Monsoon is a heavy duty drop point blade that features a high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind and a full-length swedge. A high performing Takefu SG2 PM stainless steel core is surrounded by thin layers of stainless damascus steel. The resulting cutting edge provides exceptional edge holding, but is easy to sharpen due to the small grain structure. The incredibly small crystalline size of this PM steel results in superior edge holding when compared to nearly any other stainless steel used in the knife industry! Generous jimping on the spine provides a secure area for the thumb to guide the blade. A deep choil prevents the hand from sliding up onto the cutting edge.
Carved green canvas micarta gives a tactile feel to the knife and is comfortable in any grip. The pommel is able to accept a lanyard for added security.
A high performance stainless companion built to perform no matter where your adventure takes you. Don't leave home without it!
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip.
