Description: Captain Koyama's work is always fascinating and innovating. A Japanese aesthetic predominates.
The captivating blade is formed from VG10 stainless steel sandwiched between layers of stainless Damascus. The resulting blade will have a keen, long lasting edge. The unique shape immediately grabs attention. It is easily opened using the pierced thumb notch.
Aircraft grade carbon fiber scales meet perfectly to anodized titanium bolsters. Titanium liners and a differentially anodized and fileworked backbar make the knife light and allow it to easily be kept close at hand. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action. Excellent work throughout.
The knife is accompanied by a kiri wood presentation box and Japanese silk case. The box is marked: Bushu prefecture, Hiyoshi area, First Grade Captain Bunshichi Koyama.
