Description: Koji Hara's inimitable style has won him admiration from collectors and fellow makers alike. He consistently creates knives that are renowned for their precision, craftsmanship, and performance.
Though Hara has been best known for his knives made from Cowry Y, he created this knife from san mai damascus with an SG2 powdered metallurgical steel core. SG2 provides some of the highest performance of all steels currently available.
The blade is well centered with consistent, smooth action. It is easily opened using the goldlip mother of pearl thumbstud.
Handle scales are also formed from san mai SG2 damascus. The scales are nicely sculpted to resemble bamboo. Each side features a carved bamboo sprout. The polished backbar is also carved to resemble bamboo.
The knife is accompanied by a pocket pouch made from antique kimono fabric.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
