From his hometown of Seki, Japan, Dew Hara has learned from the best—his father, Koji Hara, is one of the most respected designers in the world. Though Dew is relatively new to knife design, he’s making a serious name for himself. The Raikiri™ everyday carry knife is built with a modified wharncliffe blade that features a satin finish and a low-profile flipper. Once open, the locking liner anchors it in place between two cold-forged handles. With a sharply contrasting line, the movement in the design nods at the slashing motion of the famous sword Iaido, which has been a strong influence over Dew’s inspiration. To elevate the utility of the knife to match its aesthetic, he’s given it Field Strip technology for simple cleaning and maintenance in the field without tools.
Every hometown superhero needs a sword. This one will simply fit in your pocket.
How Field Strip Works
Field Strip Technology lets you easily disassemble your knife for cleaning without tools. To disassemble, close the knife, push the front release lever up. Then spin the rear release wheel clockwise —once you feel the handle release, pull it up and away. Handles and blade come apart easily. To bring the knife back together, place the blade and handles into the closed position - press and hold the pivot. Once the pivot is seated correctly, rotate the release wheel counter-clockwise until snug. Push front lever down. The knife is restored to full working order.
