Description: Koji Hara's knives are well known for their precision and craftsmanship. His skill and style shine through this bamboo themed folder exceptionally well. The thumb stud is inlaid with black lip mother of pearl. Jewel finished interior.
The Cowry Y stainless steel is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States. It is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. The hollow ground blade is brought to a perfect mirror finish.
Blacklip mother of pearl was carved into the shape of bamboo throughout the handle. Stainless spacers separate each of the "bamboo" sections. The dark toned pearl has tremendous underlying texture and flash. The stainless steel backbar as well as the spine were hand fileworked to match the bamboo theme.
Exceptional work throughout.
