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. It is rare to find a fixed blade made by Koji-san.
The blade and handle were meticulously hand contoured from a solid piece of SG2 san mai. The hand forged steel show hundreds of fine hammer blows. 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 any steel currently available.
The integral handle is carved to remembe bamboo -- a classic motif in Hara's knives. The detailed carving even includes th 'crack' marks at the bamboo joints.
This slim profile dagger is accompanied by a customer leather sheath.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
