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. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Combat Hawk (Ax-L) shows Kikuo's skill at its best. There is nothing subtle about this knife!
The OU-31 tool steel blade will have exceptional edge holding. OU-31 is a Japanese PM (powdered metallurgical) steel with micro-fine crystalline structure that embodies many of the best attributes needed for knives. The steel is hardened to 64 Hrc (very hard!) and has more than 3 times the toughness of D2. The blade features Kikuo's famous convex grind -- the high performance Hamaguri-ba (convex) grind combines strength behind the cutting edge with a razor sharp edge. The blade features a non-reflective disruptive acid finish.
Carved camo Micarta scales are set on a substantial full tang. Jimping on the thumb ramp provides a secure, comfortable grip. A lanyard can be added for additional security.
Accompanied by hand fitted Kydex sheath with DOTS belt clip.
Kikuo's Combat Hawk (Ax-L) will break down any barrier that gets in your way. Exceptional work throughout!
