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 well centered blade has excellent action, and is completed with a thumb stud inlaid with black lip mother of pearl.
The 420 stainless steel handle is inlaid with many sections of mother of pearl. Rays formed from goldlip mother of pearl create the impression of stylized sun rays, an effect which is enhanced by the central blacklip mother of pearl section. The design is featured on both scales and further enhanced with tsuchime, or a hammered finish, on the metal. The backbar, like the sides of the knife, is inlaid with sections blacklip and goldlip mother of pearl separated by stainless steel spacers. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
