Description: Dew (Ryuichi) Hara is the 42 year old son of renowned knifemaker Koji Hara. Dew grew up in a knife family and naturally got involved with the knifemaking by helping his father and learning his techniques. Koji Hara is well known for creating art knives with tremendous precision and detailed inlays. After working in his father's workshop for over 20 years, Dew decided to create his own knives.
The Mini Mina Flipper is a tactical EDC that shows Dew Hara's tremendous sense of design and skill. Although designed for daily carry, this knife would be a highlight of virtually any collection.
The clip point blade is formed from heat blued, mirror polished raindrop pattern damascus. By starting with carbon steels, Hara ensures a keen, long lasting edge. Aggressive jimping and a choil allow you to choke up on the blade for more delicate cutting tasks.
The blade runs on bearings and is easily opened using the ambidextrous flipper mechanism. The blade is well centered and has silky-smooth action.
The handle combines pierced DLC-coated, satin finished stainless steel, hand satin finished copper, and jewel finished 420 stainless steel. The unique stacked backbar is formed from layers of copper and stainless steel. The stainless steel pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry and is marked with serial number "1 of 1" and his makers mark.
Excellent work throughout!
