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 joined his father's knife grinding studio at the age of 15 and learned grinding techniques from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
Makora is a heavy duty camp and trail knife and is an excellent example of Kiku's knives. The thick blade blade features a convex ground (hamaguri-ba) OU-31 stain resistant tool steel (Kikuís favorite steel) and Kiku's signature disruptive acid finish. The convex geometry provides an exceptionally strong cutting edge that will hold up well to impact.
An ergonomically sculpted and contoured green Micarta grip completes this refined 12-1/3 inch heavy work piece. This sturdy design is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a tough, dependable knife that will hold up to hard, outdoor use on the trail.
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
