Description: Captain Koyama's work is always fascinating and innovating. A Japanese aesthetic predominates. The blade and backbar are formed from VG10 stainless steel, sandwiched between layers of stainless Damascus. The resulting blade will have a keen, long lasting edge. The scales are formed from three separate layers of titanium -- each differentially anodized -- surrounding a Damascus steel backbar. The outer titanium scale is anodized in such a way to appear to be fabric. This layer has also been inlaid with traditional Japanese lacquer (Urushi) and Damascus. Excellent work throughout.
