Building upon SOG's long tradition of honoring Japanese knife makers, the new fixed-blade Kiku uses the collaborative design talents of SOG and Kiku Matsuda, one of the foremost tactical knife designers in Japan. SOG and Master Kiku Matsuda have won awards on collaborations before, and this knife should turn heads, too. The elegant linen micarta handle is rugged and easy to clean, while the AUS8 stainless steel blade is set up for years of reliable service.
The Large Kiku fixed blade knife has an overall length of 11.2 inches and a 5.6-inch blade made of AUS8 stainless steel. AUS8 is high-grade chromium Japanese steel that boasts a good balance of toughness and strength, edge holding ability, corrosion resistance and cost. This blade also has a straight edge that cuts cleanly and sharpens easily.
It's hard to make precise cuts if your knife doesn't fit comfortably in your hand. That's why this knife's handle is ergonomically contoured with a full tang construction. Crafted from linen micarta, this smooth handle is created from soaking layers of linen cloth in resin, then pressing them together.
