SOG Knives Kiku Assisted Blade Pocket Knife, KU-3001
Building upon SOG's long tradition of working with and honoring Japanese knife makers, SOG partnered with Kiku Matsuda, one of the foremost tactical knife designers and blade grinders in Japan, to produce a line of knives. Together, Matsuda's decades of experience in blade grinding and making fixed blade knives and SOG's production experience has created one of the most unique, striking, and functional blades available. Through this collaboration, Matsuda and SOG have won awards and continue to drive innovative and functional knife designs. This folder features a quick SAT spring-assisted, high-end VG-10 stainless steel blade showcasing Matsuda's trademark and distinctive blade grinds. The handle is constructed using full length stainless steel liners with elegant linen Micarta slabs that are rugged, easy to clean, and look better the more it is used. The SOG Kiku Assisted blade performs just like any workhorse knife, but it does so with more balance, class, and comfort.
