Description: Koji Hara's knives are well known for their precision and craftsmanship. His skill and style shine through this folder exceptionally well. This, combined with tremendous engraving by Jody Muller, results in a truly one-of-a-kind, exceptional knife.
The blade is formed from Cowry-Y, a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States. This steel is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle and results in a superior, long lasting and keen edge.
Stainless steel front and rear bolsters are formed from 316 stainless steel. They have been meticulously engraved by Journeyman Smith Jody Muller. Double bolsters help protect handle materials if the knife is dropped. The exhibition grade white lip mother of pearl has tremendous underlying texture and a full spectrum flash. Perfectly centered blade.
