Ohta OFF FK5P IW Folding Knife 50mm Ironwood Handle
Hiroaki Ohta, a skilled artisan based in Tokyo, Japan, is renowned for his masterful craftsmanship in the realm of fixed blade and folding knives. With a focus on precision heat treatment techniques and exceptional leather sheath-making skills, his creations truly stand out.
The handle is made of one-piece of Desert Ironwood. This choice of handle material guarantees that the knife retains its shape even during outdoor usage, making it an ideal companion for various activities. Each handle is unique and is perfect for those who enjoy beauty in natural materials.
Crafted from D2 steel, a high carbon, high chromium semi-stainless steel akin to SKD-11, these fixed blade knives excel as versatile tools. Notably, this steel exhibits remarkable wear-resistance; however, it will take a bit longer to sharpen. The blade will patina at a much slower rate than carbon steel. It’s important to make sure it is completely dry before storage to prevent rust. Should the stainless folding pin become loose over time, a gentle tap with a hammer on the joint will effectively tighten it.
