SOG partnered with Kiku Matsuda, one of the foremost tactical knife designers and blade grinders in Japan, to produce a line of knives. Matsuda’s decades of experience in blade grinding and making fixed blade knives has created one of the most unique, striking, and functional blades available. This knife features Matsuda’s distinctive blade grinds on a full tang 4-inch S35VN steel blade. The linen Micarta handle is rugged, easy to clean, looks better the more it is used, and offers superior grip in wet or dry conditions. It comes in a versatile Kydex sheath with an adjustable low-profile, locking mount.
