Description: The airstep design has become a hallmark of Koji Hara's work. This terraced technique results in particularly dramatic front and rear bolsters. This surrounds blue/green/caramel toned mammoth ivory scales. It is rare to find a knife from Koji using mammoth ivory, and the result is exceptional.
The stainless steel 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. The resulting edge has extremely good edge retention. The blade has been hollow ground and mirror polished. It is easily opened using the goldlip mother of pearl thumb stud. The blade has silky-smooth action. Jewel finished interior. Exceptional work throughout!
