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. Kiku joined his father's business at 15 years old. Over the years, Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary. Whether you know it or not, you may already have a knife blade ground by him. He personally grinds knifes for the like of William Henry, Pro-tech, and Randall King.
Shinobi is Japanese for "ninja", which, aside from Hollywood's glamorization, were historically spies and mercenaries. This compact knife is perfect for when an unobtrusive tool rules the day. The blade is made from Kikuo’s personal favorite, OU-31 stain resistant tool steel and features his hamaguri-ba (convex) grind and a false edge along the top.
The handle scales are made from green canvas Micarta that are carved for increased grip. Expertly placed jimping on the spine provides extra traction for the thumb. A reliable companion to depend on in any stealth adventure!
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok belt clip.
