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. Kiku joined his father's business at the age of 15 and learned grinding technique from his father. Kiku's skill at the grinder has become legendary.
This large blade is among the largest knives that Kiku has made to date. It is Kikuo's homage to the traditional Japanese sword. It does not fall short of its namesake. Kojin is the Japanese god of fire. He embodies fire controlled and turned toward a good purpose and is said to destroy all impurity.
The expertly balanced blade is ground from Kiku's favorite steel, OU-31 semi-stainless. It features his distinctive disruptive acid finish. A long swedge travels along the spine. The carved canvas micarta handle provides a sure, comfortable grip. Kojin in an all-around excellent choice as a stand-alone blade for extended ventures into unknown territory where every piece of your kit must be absolutely dependable!
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
This sword is amazing!!
