Full information

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, while the AUS-8 stainless steel blade is set up for years of reliable service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing knife I got this knife about four months ago and haven't put it down since. The durability is amazing. I have put it through its fair share of use and am astonished with the quality. Every guy I show it to falls in love with it. The handle feels very comfortable in hand. So far it has held its edge perfectly. This is the perfect knife to show off sogs reputation and will defiantly be buying more very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful knife I bought this knife about a month ago because I needed a medium size sturdy folder. This knife has been with me every single day and used almost every single day from cutting ropes to opening packages. It's held its edge through it all and doesn't even need to be sharpened yet! Wonderful knife will definitely buy more from SOG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sick looking knife No problems. It's sharp, the handle material is great, the blade is cool looking. The only thing is the pocket clip paint chipped a little.
