  Koji's son, Dew Hara is now 41 years old. He grew up in a knife family and naturally got involved with the knifemaking by helping his father and learning his technique. As you know, Master Koji Hara is famous for the Art knives with precision and detailed hand inlay work and established his own world of Japanese traditonal Art knives. Now that Dew has worked and studied for over 20 years at his father's workshop, it's time go to his own direction for an another Dew's World. Of course, it's not easy, and is a long way, but he has a passion and talent of creating something unique in his own design and function. We, at Kencrest/JKD would like to team up with Dew to support and work together for his final goal.

Apart from his father, Dew has been training at the well-known custom knifemaker, Anthony Marfione as his disciple. Due to the visa problem, he had to return to Japan in two years, but it was a great experience for him to learn something different from his father. Upon his return, he came up with the "NOAH" series of unique Tactical Folders

JKD Exclusive VG-10 Damascus Kiridashi 

koji.jpg 

   
Koji has been a long time friend of mine for almost 30 years. When he started making custom knife in 1988, I have traveled lots with him to various American and other international knife shows to help English communication and promote his knives at his tables. Now, as you know, he has established the top position of Japanese custom knife craftsmen and is aggressively introducing his work of arts influenced with traditional Japanese objects at the major knife shows in the world.

 

   About a month ago, Koji has approached me with an idea to make one piece construction Bamboo style Kiridashi Knife (Japanese Craft knife) out of the VG-10 core layered with Nickel and stainless Damascus steel. After hand grinding and shaping from the solid steel blank, he has oxidized the blade and handle. The result was a beautiful silver lines and bamboo designs coming out from a black background. He explained me that the Nickel layers stand out in silver, as it is not oxidized.

 

   We have then decided to make 30 pieces each and offer to JKD customers exclusively with a wooden gift box and serial numbers (01 to 30). For those who wanted Koji Hara knives, but could not attend his shows or wait several months to get his knives, this will be a great opportunity to acquire his work of art at a reasonable price. Now, we have only one piece of each model here (Serial numbered g01h), and another 29 pieces of each are in production. We expect to get those soon, but please allow some times to deliver. We will let you know the exact shipping date, if not in stock, as soon as you place an order.
