Description
SOGKU2012: KU-2012 Large Kiku Fixed Blade, Black TiNi
SOG Knives
 
Sometimes a folding knife comes along that is just begging to be made as a fixed blade. For SOG it was the Kiku.
 
This fixed blade beauty is a version of the popular folding collaboration between SOG and legendary Japanese knife maker Kiku Matsuda. Features a rugged linen micarta handle, molded hard nylon sheath, and full tang construction.

Building upon SOG’s long tradition of honoring Japanese knife makers, these fixed-blade Kikus use 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 AUS-8 stainless steel blade is set up for years of reliable service.

safe queen
It's indeed a beautiful knife, a fantastic display piece. I personally would never bring it with me into the wood/bush/field. The con-curved edge makes it impossible to sharpen in the field. A good bushcraft knife? No! it's hollow grind. A good fighter/defensive knife? No! too thick, slow you down.

best combat knife
best combat knife IN THE WORLD, period !!!! Could be perfect if it is made in 154CM or VG10 but, honestly, it is very difficult to make better.
