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. Over the years, Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Kikuo designed the Akigumo to be a versatile utility knife. The wide, thin hamaguri-ba blade makes it ideal for thin slicing. Kikuo uses this design to prepare food when he is out on fishing trips.
The expertly balanced blade is ground from Kikuo's favorite steel, OU-31 semi-stainless. It features his distinctive disruptive acid finish. A long swedge travels along the spine.
Hand contoured black G10 scales provide a sure, comfortable grip.
An all-around excellent choice as a utility blade for extended ventures into unknown territory!
