    The SOG Kiku Assisted VG10 Black Folding Knife is an elegant example of what a knife can be. Made in collaboration with master blade maker; Kiku Matsuda of Japan. This blade is crafted with stainless steel liners, a linen Micarta handle, and SAT assisted VG-10 blade that make this folder a great everyday carry knife.

    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.

    SOG Assisted Technology
    SOG Assisted Technology works by balancing opposing high-tension coil springs. As you start to open the knife the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. Resulting in a blade that springs open seemingly on its own.

    VG-10 Stainless Steel
    VG-10 is well-known high-end Japanese steel containing vanadium to create a cutlery-quality blade that is sharpened to a fine edge. The combination makes a premium quality steel that maintains the hardness of Rc 60 but less brittle.
