White Awabi Scales
Steel: O1 - double tempered
Comes shave ready
The scales are 100% genuine Awabi shell on a yellow backing and covered with a durable topcoat of industrial resin making them very sturdy, maintenance free and at the same time protecting the shell.
Awabi (Abalone) are fist-sized sea snails that live in the sea around Japan at a depth of approximately twenty meters. They are usually caught by skin divers, as it is prohibited to catch awabi while using air tanks in Japan in order to prevent overfishing. Given their declining numbers and the effort required to catch them, awabi are rare and expensive, especially big ones. It takes five years for them to grow to a size of four inches. Awabi (abalone) are very precious food in Japan.
It's very difficult to accurately capture the exact colors of the scales because shell is very iridescent and changes hue at every angle.
