Kanetsune KB551 Subaru Drop Point With Ogg Sharpening edge



This ‘Drop Point’ or ‘Skinner’ from Kanetsune really is a piece of art (but functional).The KB551 is fully made in Japan with a forge of Rockwell C hardness of 61 and a vg10 Damascus blade with a flat grind from spine to edge. Certainly an eye catching piece, as the finish and fitup work on the Mahogany Micarta handle is faultless.It is a Full tang knife with a lanyard hole and a beautiful brass thumb guard with impeccable fit and finish.This knife is a very comfortable fit in your hand when moving it around for those various tasks that easily suit the flat grind Drop Point Blade.Strong visual Damascus pattern from the 33 layer blade and beautifully embossed with pride.The pouch is of fine leather and is also embossed with Kanetsune’s emblem with a polished wood separator for the blades’ edge. Without a doubt, this is a lifetime item that would make an incredible gift too.
