Description: The Kiku Knives Kawa-Garasu is a tremendous all purpose utility knife. Kikuo is an enthusiastic fisherman and he developed this knife as the perfect fisherman's river knife.
The 3-1/2 inch blade is formed from OUS steel -- created by forging AUS-6 stainless steel around an OU-31 semi-stainless steel core. This results in a knife that has the legendary edge holding that has made Kiku Knives famous with easier care. The soft, supportive sides help support the super-hard center core during hard use. The blade is completed with Kikuo's non-reflective, disruptive acid finish.
The knife is accompanied by a hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip. This is a tremendously practical EDC utility!
