He is the son of legendary Japanese knifemaker, Koji Hara and has just finished a four year apprenticeship with another well-known custom knifemaker, Anthony Marfione. Dew Hara is sure to be one of the upcoming stars of the knife industry. If you want to own one of the early knives from Dew Hara, who is sure to be one of the world's great knifemakers, grab one of these now.
The Kabuto is a push button folder that locks both in the opened and closed positions, and the blade can be easily and instantly deployed by flicking your wrist while pushing down the button. The mirror polished blade features unique lightning wavy grooves to give it an aggressive look. The design of this knife is to resemble the helmet first used by ancient Japanese warriors, and in later periods, they became an important part of the traditional Japanese armor worn by the samurai class and their retainers in feudal Japan. It's an extremely interesting looking piece, different than almost anything else we've ever seen and it includes a Japanese Kimono cloth pouch.
