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 D-Lock (aka 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 differentially anodized titanium bolsters. The jigging is particularly unique. I wish more jigged bone was textured like this! By dovetailing the bolsters to the scales, Koyama-san ensures the knife will maintain 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 clip (mounted for tip-down carry).
Excellent work throughout!
