Description: Ryuichi (Dew) 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 Ryuchi Hara's tremendous sense of design and skill. The handle combines textured copper with carbon fiber overlay.
The blade is formed from VG-10 stainless steel, surrounded by layers of linear damascus. The mirror polished surface shows the many dramatic layers.
The blade is easily opened using the ambidextrous flipper mechanism. It runs on bearings and has silky-smooth action. To keep the knife close at hand, it includes a pocket clip mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. The pocket clip is marked "003" for Prototype #3.
This knife includes a hard storage case, a kimono fabric carry pouch, and a certificate of authenticity from the maker. Exceptional work throughout!
