Description: Ryuichi (Dew) Hara is the 41 year old son of renowned knifemaker Koji Hara. Dew grew up in a knife family and naturally got involved with the knifemaking by helping his father and learning his techniques. Koji Hara is well known for create art knives with tremendous precision and detailed inlays. After working in his father's workshop for over 20 years, Dew decided to create his own knives.
The Noah Flipper is a masterpiece! The blade is instantly opened using the jimped flipper tab. The 3-1/2 inch modified tanto blade is made from M390 stainless steel with mirror polished grinds and brushed satin flats. M390 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. The powder metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The front grind is flat ground, while the back section is hollow ground.
Ball bearings keep the action effortlessly smooth. The blade is perfectly centered.
The ergonomic handle is constructed from carved lacewood with black carbon fiber film set in window frames. The shape gives you a rock-solid grip in both the forward and reverse grips. Dew used Microtech's tamper-proof screws to put this knife together. A small finger choil provides a perfect rest for precise cutting tasks. Jimping on the thumb ramp ensures a secure grip.
The Noah Flipper is an extremely interesting looking piece, showing Dew Hara's Japanese heritage and the influence of his time working at Microtech. The knife is accompanied by both a zipper case and a Japanese Kimono cloth pouch. It is easy to keep the Noah close by using the right handed, tip-up pocket clip.
Exceptional work throughout!
