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.
The Kaya-Nezumi is the smallest knife Kiku has ever made and is a perfect lightweight utility neck knife. The blade is just over 2 inches and is made from VG-10 and VG-2 layered damascus steel to help combat rust and corrosion. Jimped thumb notches down the spine provide extra grip and comfort.
The handle scales are made from green canvas Micarta, carved for traction and comfort while carrying or using. The scales are set on a full tang for a long lasting durability. A reliable companion to depend on in any adventure!
Accompanied by a kydex sheath with paracord neck strap.
