Description: Captain Koyama is an innovator at heart and action. His designs are well thought through and very creative.
The blade of this push dagger was created using a san mi technique, whereby soft Damascus layers are forged so as to surround an extremely hard VG10 stainless steel core. The result is an exceptionally keen, long lasting edge.
The handle is formed from stabilized blue maple. Japanese silk pillows (Nishijin) provide a very comfortable cushion to the handle. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
