Description: Koji Hara's knives are well known for their precision and craftsmanship. His masterful eye for design and flawless execution mean this bamboo themed folder is a pure delight.
The blade is formed from Cowry Y, which is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States. This steel is capable of a higher hardness without becoming brittle -- resulting in a long lasting, durable and keen edge.
Goldlip mother of pearl has been sculpted into the shape of bamboo the entire length of the handle. Stainless spacers separate each of the "bamboo" sections. The mother of pearl has stunningly beautiful underlying texture and flash, its tones ranging from champagne to honey with flashes of a rainbow sheen. The stainless steel backbar as well as the spine have been fileworked to resemble bamboo, in keeping with the theme. The knife is completed with a thumb stud, inlaid with blacklip mother of pearl. The liners are jewel polished. Exceptional work throughout!
