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 steel is a powdered metallurgical steel not available in the United States, which is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle. The resulting edge is long lasting and keen.
Sections of goldlip mother of pearl have been set to resemble bamboo. Stainless spacers separate each of the "bamboo" internodes. The bright golden mother of pearl has tremendous underlying texture and flash. A 316 stainless steel bolster is hammer textured. The 316 stainless steel backbar is inlaid with four sections of mother of pearl.
Exceptional work throughout!
