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. His father runs a small workshop in Seki, grinding blades for production knife makers. Kiku learned grinding techniques from his father and over the years his skill at the grinder has become legendary.
In his spare time, and when Kikuo travels the world visiting knife shows, after the show, he is often found in local rivers fishing. It is one of his passions and inspires many of his knife designs. This fisherman's knife is designed to easily clean fish while out in the field. By using SG-2 PM stainless steel, Kikuo ensures the very best edge holding. This thin profiled, knife is light enough to be very easy to carry. The Kydex sheath is easily attached to a belt using the DOTS beld clip.
The blade is made from Takefu Super Gold 2 powdered metallurgical damascus steel for its superior edge holding and keenness. The hollow ground blade and false edge reveal the intricate layers of damascus. The thin (.1") blade stock, swedge and retension lanyard provide a perfect balance and make the Hamakaze an excellent choice as a fisherman's utility knife. The jimped spine has a slight swayback, providing very precise control of the tip. It is quite impressive how much extra dexterity such a subtle detail adds to this knife. Whether you are fishing, camping, or walking through the urban jungle, this knife is a prime example of Kiku Knives' multi-functional versatility.
Green G-10 scales are set on a full tang for strength and durability. The thin profile, 3D contoured handle provides a comfortable, non-slip grip.
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
