Description: Japanese knifemaker Captain Bunshichi Koyama's designs are truly innovative. He designs and develops his knives with unique locking mechanisms that immediately capture the imagination. This one features an opening and closing mechanism controlled by a push button. Koyama-san calls this mechanism a Pool-Lock.
The damascus blade combines a premium VG10 stainless steel core with linear damascus sides. VG10 Suminagashi provides a keen, long lasting edge. The linear pattern shows off his clean grind lines.
Blue/black carbon fiber scales are set on anodized titanium liners. Gold carbon fiber 'bolsters' add a nice accent. A titanium backbar keeps the knife light yet strong.
Nice work throughout on a very creative knife!
