Description: Koji Hara's handmade knives are well known for their precision, craftsmanship and performance. The steel is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States, which is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle. Over the last few years, Cowry Y has become increasingly hard to find -- even in Japan. The resulting edge has extremely good edge retention. The mirror polished surface is achieved though meticulous polishing with a tooth brush and abrasive powders! The thumb stud is inlaid with blacklip mother of pearl.
The 420 stainless steel handle is inlaid with many sections of abalone. Alternating sections of abalone and mirror polished steel immediately grab attention. The spine, like the sides of the knife, is also inlaid with sections of abalone separated by stainless steel spacers.
Great fit and finish throughout!
