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.
This broad utility knife is ground in Hamaguri-ba (convex) style from Takefu SG2 powdered metallurgical (PM) stainless steel. This technique of making steel results in smaller grain structure and a keener, longer lasting edge. It features his distinctive disruptive acid finish. The blade has a slight recurve for aggressive cutting. A long swedge travels along the spine.
Carved OD green canvas micarta scales provide a sure, comfortable grip. Retaining camo paracord and thumb notches along the back are a nice touch. 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.
