CRKT Unveils An Elite Titanium & Böhler Steel Dew Hara-Designed Folder

Jul 28, 2020

Category: Gear

The son of eminent blade designer Koji Hara, Dew Hara is an elite Japanese knife maker based out of his hometown of Seki, Japan — a region with a rich and expansive history of sword and knife production. And while Dew Hara typically trades in ultra-exclusive custom blades, the designer has now joined forces with the Colombia River Knife & Tool Company for a limited edition release of a unique high-end spearpoint folder.

Dubbed the “Hirin,” the knife features a set of 6AL4V titanium handles equipped with a sturdy liner lock. Partially blue-anodized and sporting various cutouts to help shave off weight, the titanium scales have been paired with a top-shelf (0.12” thick) 3.39” Böhler M390 steel blade spear point blade with a stonewashed finish that’s smoothly guided by CRKT’s IKBS ball bearing system. Penned by Hara in Japan before being manufactured in Maniago, Italy, the knife weighs in at 5.9oz and measures 8.69” with the blade deployed, and 5.26” when closed. In total, the Hirin’s production is limited to only 500 units worldwide, furthering the exclusive nature of the Hara-designed folder. Available now on the Colombia River Knife & Tool Company’s website, the Hirin Limited Edition folding knife has been priced at $250.
