Description: Captain Koyama's work is always fascinating and innovating. A Japanese aesthetic predominates.
The blade is formed from VG10 stainless steel, sandwiched between layers of stainless Damascus. The resulting blade will have a keen, long lasting edge with the beauty of layered steel.
The scales, backbar and liners are formed from hand textured and differentially anodized titanium (both inside and out). A window frame reveals underlying textured and anodized titanium with an urusi (traditional Japanese lacquer) dragon. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
