Description: Koji Hara's knives are well known for their precision and craftsmanship. The well centered blade has excellent action. Black lip mother of pearl thumb stud. Jewel finished interior. The steel is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States, which is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle than American steels. The resulting edge has extremely good edge retention. The 420 stainless steel handle is meticulously inlaid with many sections of abalone. Great fit and finish throughout.
