Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Hiroaki Ohta custom knives
Direct from the Maker from the New York Custom Knife Show 2012
I was Hiroaki’s first customer at the recent New York Show ~ this was the only two blade Slipjoint that he brought to the show. This is a precision Double Blade Serpentine Trapper pattern Slipjoint with gorgeous premium Sambar Stag handles.
It is hard to imagine the hours invested in creating such a one of a kind knife as this, all the parts are hand crafted and must fit together precisely and Hiroaki is known by collectors for accomplishing this on every knife.
Mirror Polished Stainless Bolsters with custom Crimping on the front, hand Rubbed High Satin finish on the Clip and Wharncliff blades.
The Stag has been aged and has the appearance of an ol time pocket knife that has been treasured for decades. The Modified Wharncliff blade is very unique and perfectly ground.
Each 3.5″ blade has an extremely sharp Cutting edge, a firm half stop, silky smooth walk and talk and excellent spring tension, approx a 5.5 on both blades.
Perfectly matched Stag handles. Precision all the way around!
Hiroaki makes his own Leather Pocket Sheaths for every knife, well stitched and holds the knife securely.
A precise hand crafted tool that will appeal to anyone who enjoys a Traditional / Quality product.
