Description: This gent's folder shows off Koji Hara's work well. The thumb stud has been inlaid with goldlip mother of pearl. The interior has been jewel finished. 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.
Sections of exhibition grade goldlip mother of pearl are set on 416 stainless steel liners and brought to a mirror polish. Stainless steel spacers separate each of the sections. The golden pearl has tremendous underlying texture and a full spectrum flash. The 416 stainless steel backbar has been inlaid with sections of gold lip mother of pearl. Mokume gane bolsters are perfectly fit to the scales and nicely highlight the golden tones in the mother of pearl. Excellent work throughout.
