You haven't seen just what the art of blade grinding beholds until you've seen a knife made by Kiku Matsuda.

As the first official product collaboration between Kiku Matsuda and SOG, the Kiku Folder boasts a complex blade grind that holds true to the work Kiku has exhibited since he began grinding blades at the age of 15 in Japan .

The AUS8 stainless steel blade features a slightly recurved blade with a hollow grind, a flat grind, and a convex grind, making it one of the most complex grinds on a production model.

Although this iteration comes with a 4.6-inch satin-finished blade, it's also available with a smaller 3.5-inch blade or a black TiNi blade.

Balancing out the liner locking folder is a linen micarta handle that offers a reliable grip in nearly any condition. A deep carry pocket clip ensures the knife is by your side at all times.
