Description: Captain Koyama's designs are truly innovative. He designs and develops his knives with unique locking mechanisms that immediately capture the imagination. This one features a mechanism called a reverse C-lock. This is a modification of his most popular and well known mechanism (the C-Lock). Here, the blade is locked both when open and closed. It is easily operated with a simple ambidextrous action. The top rear of the blade, above the bolster, is pressed down and forward, releasing the lock.
Amber jigged bone scales meet with titanium bolsters. The titanium has been engraved and differentially anodized. By dovetailing the bolsters to the scales, Koyama-san ensures a perfect fit. Blue anodized titanium liners keep the knife light and strong. The knife is easily kept close at hand using the titanium pocket (mounted for tip-down carry). Excellent work throughout!
