Needless to say, Koji Hara is the Japan's top custom knife maker and designer. His skilled technique and sensitive artistic sense creates a masterpiece of the Art knife that gives you a feeling of Japanese soul.
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.
