Limited Edition Combat Chef MkII

Our Limited Edition Series Combat Chef MkII is one of our most exclusive chef knife blades available. The OU-31 blades are individually hand-forged to our design specifications by the Japanese master blade-maker and grinder, Kiku Matsuda.

No two knives will be identical because each handle and presentation will be different. You can choose your own handle shape and decorative accents.

Special gambler edition custom knife with heart handguard from Salter Fine Cutlery

Kiku’s trademark subtle Damascus pattern and textured matte finish make this an absolutely impressive looking blade; his trademark ‘magic hand’ Appleseed grind makes it incredibly sharp. The 5mm thick blade and finger notch along the top of the spine makes this knife a hefty combination of tactical hunter and chef knife. This is a knife-lovers knife!

There will only be a limited release of four of these blades, making them an exclusive and rare collectible opportunity.
