Hot News on Tactical Knives Magazine!

In the recent November issue of the Tactical Knives magazine (shown left), Kiku knives are admired by Gunny (R. Lee Armey) in his interview articles. He is an open-hearted guy, and spoke to us friendly in Japanese, when he visited Kiku's table at the Blade Show. He said he was in Okinawa for a few years, and he loves Japan.




Kiku with Gunny!
As promised at the SHOT Show in January, Kiku has made a special knife for Gunny, and presented him at the Blade Show. Gunny was so happy with the special model, and has visited Kiku's table during the show.

Just received a good feedback from Tom Tsouris who is collecting Kiku knives:

"I just received my new Kiku Matsuda "Yoroi Tooshi." It is truly a masterpiece. It is much more impressive in person than I imagined. Razor sharp and incredibly tough, the hamaguri-ba blade cuts through everything like a laser even though the knife is 6mm thick at the spine. The new polished finish is extremely tasteful. This will be the centerpiece of my growing knife collection. Thank you very much for finding it for me. It is always a pleasure doing business with you and your service is next to none.                                  Sincerely  Tom Tsouris"

Here is a comment from Mr. Bob Moon who has recently bought Kiku knife:

"Thank you for a very beautiful knife. It has a wonderful overall shape, and a fine edge. It has a timeless beauty that is indicative of the refinement of Japanese design. I am very pleased, and please pass this message on to Master Kiku"

  

   We have many more thanks letters from the users, and here is the one from Marcin Morawski in Poland 

 

 

Kiku Matsuda, the new knifemaker who has a magic hand in grinding and polishing the blades in any angles and directions. Unlike normal grinders, he uses a side flat area of the power wheel, that is his canvas to create any 3D grindings, concave, hollow, flat, Hamaguri (convex), twist, double and triple grindings in a free hand. He says his fingers move automatically from his imagination. This is amazing!!!!!!! 

 

    His father has been running a small workshop in Seki for blade grinding work for Seki production knife makers. Kiku has joined at the age of 15 and learned the grinding technique from his father. He is now 56, and his 40 years experiences and techniques have proved to be a best grinder in the world. His fine work was admitted by William Henry Knives some years ago, and all of their custom grade blades are being hand ground and polished by him.

 

 

 



   

 

 After his son, Masayuki (3rd generation) has joined, he has started making his own knives (handmade custom knives). At the local knife shows, his unique Tactical knives have quickly received great reputations for it’s unique blade style and extreme durability and sharpness. His first blade steel preference is the OU-31 (see details of this newly developed specialty steel here), but he also uses D2, ATS-34 and VG-10.

 

The blade durability, edge sharpness and longer edge retention of his knives are not only for the steel character, but also for his special Hamaguri-Ba (Japanese Convex edge famous for Katana) grinding. After polished the blade, he will use a special art etching process on the blade for non-glare finish, corrosion resistance  and blade surface protection. He prefers to use G-10 for the handles, hand contoured and shaped to fit with hand with an unique parachute cord guard. Each knife comes with hand fitted Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok carrying device.

 

You will be amazed with the outstanding blade grinding and cutting performance of Kiku Knives, when you actually use it. We would like you to experience and prove it,  However, his custom knife production is very limited right now, as he still devotes most of his work for the blade grinding for several knife makers. So far, he only made some knives for the shows. Kiku is my long time friend, and I have been helping him traveling and conducting international shows in last 4 years. From the show knives he made, I was choosing and collecting a few best knives at a time, and finally, the time has come to introduce 15 different knives to the JKD customers. Please note that we have only one piece each model, and have no idea when we will have next, once sold out. Fortunately, he intends to share more times to make his own custom knives, so we hope to be able to get more knives in the near future.

Kiku was chosen and involved with this project from the beginning for the design work, prototypes and field testing.

After months of working, he finally came up with the perfect knives to meet with their extreme demands.

His grinding technique and special Hamaguri-ba made it possible. Reinforced thick Hamaguri grind tip is strong enough to penetrate  wall and  car body, and pry open the door and window.
