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 knife can be easily opened using the blacklip mother of pearl thumbstud.
The 420 stainless steel handle is carved into the shape of a bamboo shoot. The surface is enhanced with tsuchime, or a hand hammered finish throughout. Inlaid abalone bamboo stalks add dramatic color. The backbar is carved into the shape of bamboo.
Includes a pocket pouch made from antique kimono fabric. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
