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 piece is as impressive as its name suggests. Deceptively nimble for its size, the Anaconda combines the versatility of a machete with the cutting efficiency reminiscent of a kukri in one tool. The 13-1/2 inch blade features OU-31 tool steel (Kikuís favorite steel) and a hamaguri-ba (convex) grind. A nicely rounded and contoured camo canvas Micarta grip completes this refined 19-1/2 inch brute. Whether blazing trails through dense jungle, opening a felled log to get at the dry inner core, or just making some kindling, the Anaconda is capable and tough enough for any situation.
Accompanied by a Kydex sheath.
