Description

HIROAKI OHTA

 Hiroaki Ohta has been hand crafting knives since 1989 and began making Full Time in 1998.  His folding knives are prized the world over for their precision and beauty.  Hiroaki Ohta’s knives have been featured in the KNIVES Annuals and appeared in BLADE magazine last year.  

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Hiroaki Ohta hand made knives


Direct from the Maker from the recent NYCKS 2013

  This is an elegant, slim Gentleman’s fixed blade from Hiroaki.

 Hiroaki was very pleased that I enjoyed this design, I ordered a few more and received them at the last Show.

 Hiroaki chose some very unique Stabilized Rose Wood for the handle scales that are well matched with Amazing Grain and color.

Black Micarta Pins add a dramatic look.  This knife is Full Tang and has a Full Length Grip handle. 

The D2 Steel blade has a Full Height Hollow Grind, a labor intensive Hand Rubbed / High Satin finish and an expert Heat Treat that leaves the blade at 61-62 Rc.  A perfect size for any application.

 Hiroaki makes the handles of his knives slim so they are very comfortable and I have used one for quite a while with no hand fatigue.

Hiroaki also makes his own thick Leather Sheaths,  on this one he has added a new feature ~ a Full Kydex Lining.

The knife is a perfect fit and it “locks” into place due to the Kydex Liner, this knife will not even fall out if you turn the sheath upside down and shake it!  Set up with a Hardened Steel Carabiner Clip allows the sheath to be clipped to any Belt Loop or Strap.

 If you long for an upscale EDC that will ride comfortably and be extremely comfortable to use then look no further.

You will not find a better value on a Personal sized Custom Fixed Blade!
