I'm not a knife collector or anything, but I have definitely learned to appreciate knives and pocket knives ever since I started working at Korin.

My favorite pieces tended to be by Mr. Koji Hara, who stops by to visit Korin every so often for various conventions. I've never purchased anything, but I always admired them. Anyways today, I was given this beauty from Mr. Hara:

I apologize, it's really hard to see. I don't have a camera so I asked my coworker for a picture. I think its mother of pearl?

Thanks for reading! :)

Thanks! :D

He also makes the handles for the special Togiharu knives, but he specializes in pocket knives.
