Description: Renowned Japanese knifemaker Kiku 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.
Kirisame is a great all purpose utility EDC. The SHSS (Super Hard Stainless Steel) drop point blade features a high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind with a full-length swedge. SHSS is a new steel made by Daido. It combines exceptional for corrosion resistance (sometimes compared to Spyderco's H1), but is 60 Hrc, ensuring exceptional edge holding. It features a subtle, brushed disruptive acid finish.
Carved OD green canvas micarta scales provide a sure, comfortable grip. A central cut-out keeps the knife light. An all-around excellent choice as a stand-alone blade for extended ventures into unknown territory where every piece of your kit must be absolutely dependable!
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
