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. This folding dagger flipper has particularly nice action.
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 diamond dust and a tooth brush! The well centered blade has silky-smooth action, and is easily opened using the inobtrusive flipper.
The 420 stainless steel handle is inlaid many small squares of whitelip mother of pearl. The design is featured on both sides and further enhanced with tsuchime, or a hand hammered finish, on the metal 'bolster'. The backbar, like the sides of the knife, is inlaid with sections mother of pearl separated by stainless steel spacers.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout! One of Koji Hara's best works to date.
