Description: Koji Hara's knives are well known for their precision and craftsmanship. His skill and style shine through this folder exceptionally well. The thumb stud has been inlaid with white lip mother of pearl. Jewel finished interior. The steel is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States, which is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle. The resulting edge is long lasting and keen.
Whitelip mother of pearl has been sculpted into the shape of bamboo throughout the handle. Stainless steel spacers separate each of the "bamboo" sections. The brilliant white pearl has tremendous underlying texture and a full spectrum flash. The 316 stainless steel backbar as well as the spine have been fileworked to match the bamboo theme. Exceptional work throughout.
