  This is a Elegant Gentleman’s Drop Point from Hiroaki Ohta

   The beautiful Sambar Stag Scales on this knife were Aged and have Amazing Gnarly Grain and color

This knife has a Full Hidden Tang and it has a Comfortable Full Finger Grip. Hiroaki encloses the entire Tang in a Single Piece of Natural Micarta.  

The Forged Stainless Damascus / San-Mai Blade has a VG-10 Core with a Full Height Hollow Grind and deep Etch.  Hiroaki performs his own expert Heat Treat & Cryo Quench that leaves the blade at 61-62 Rc.

A Great Field or Stream knife with very hard to find Sambar Stag Scales. Since the Ban on the Export of Sambar Stag from India almost 15 year ago, Stag of this Quality is long gone from today’s market. The Black Micarta Pins and Conrtoured Micarta Guard blend for a dramatic look. 

 Perfect size for discreet and comfortable Belt Carry for an upscale EDC.

Hiroaki also makes his own thick, Hand Stitched 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!  


 If you long for an upscale / discreet 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!
