The Kiku Folder is the first folding knife designed by Kiku Matsuda, and an official production collaboration between SOG and Kiku Knives. It features a modified tanto style AUS-8 steel blade with a high satin finish. The Kiku blade has a hollow ground main bevel that transitions to a flat ground tip, which is visually stunning and functionally strong. The Kiku features linen Micarta scales with a ridged perimeter and a full-length groove down the face for excellent grip characteristics. Built on a stainless steel liner lock frame with a deep carry pocket clip.

Weird blade shape, uncomfortable handle
Han L.
The only thing I like about this knife is the look. I bought it when I wasn't too into knives, as my first collection. So it has a special place in my heart.
Other than that, it's all bad. The blade has a recurve which is not very useful for daily tasks. The whole blade sweeps downward which feels weird. The handle doesn't fill my palm at all. Gripping this handle feels like pimping it with two fingers.
