Description: Koji Hara's inimitable style has won him admiration from collectors and fellow makers alike. He consistently creates knives that are renowned for their precision, craftsmanship, and performance.
The steel Koji prefers is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States, capable of a higher hardness without being brittle compared to American steels. Over the last few years, Cowry Y has become increasingly hard to find, even in Japan. The resulting blade has extremely good edge retention. The mirror polished surface is only possible though meticulous polishing with a tooth brush! The flats are meticulously textured. The blade is opened with a flick of the flipper mechanism.
The 316 stainless steel handle is inlaid with a 24kt gold sun on the left side and a pure silver moon on the left. The steel is carved and textured to resemble rays of light travelling outward. A textured steel pocket clip is mounted for tip down carry. Exceptional work throughout!
