Description: This gent's folder shows off Koji Hara's work well. The thumb stud has been inlaid with black lip 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.
Black lip mother of pearl has been sculpted into the shape of bamboo throughout the handle. Stainless steel spacers separate each of the "bamboo" sections. The black pearl has tremendous underlying texture and a full spectrum flash. The 416 stainless steel backbar has been sculpted to match the bamboo theme. Excellent work throughout.
