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. Kikuo joined his father's business at 15 years old and learned the grinding technique from his father. Kikuo's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
The Buster Blade G is handmade and shows Kikuo's his skill at its best. It is surprisingly nimble for its size. The Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical damascus steel blade provides the best edge in Kikuo's knives. The long, recurve blade features Kiku's high performance Hamaguri (convex) grind.
A nicely rounded and contoured Micarta grip completes this refined workhorse. Retaining camo paracord and thumb notches ensure a secure grip. The Buster Blade G is a dependable companion to rely on in any adventure!
Accompanied by a hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip. Exceptional work throughout!
