SOG Kiku Small
Building upon SOG’s long tradition of honoring Japanese knife makers, SOG and Kiku Matsuda, one of the most famous blade grinders in Japan, collaborated to produce this line of Kiku Folders. After decades of experience in blade grinding and making fixed blade knives, Matsuda, with the production assistance from SOG, designed and created his first folding knife. As one of the foremost tactical knife designers in Japan, Matsuda and SOG have won awards on collaborations before with the SOG Kiku Fixed Blade.
The elegant linen micarta handle is rugged and easy to clean. Micarta is very durable for all kind of applications and is impervious to elements and most chemicals. In addition, Micarta doesn't get slippery in cold and wet conditions.
The Blade is AUS-8, another steel developed in Japan. While keeping the cost low, AUS-8 features good edge retention and corrosion resistance as well as ease of sharpening.
