The tradition of producing Higonokami has been handed down for over 100 years at the Kanekoma factory in Japan. Five generations of skill and craftsmanship are reflected in the quality of this small knife. The super sharp blade is made from blue steel which is purer than white steel and holds its edge longer. The blade is also double-edged meaning it can be used either side regardless of the dominant hand. 
Comes in a small presentation box so would make a great gift or stocking filler.

Blade length: 75 mm
Knife closed: 95 mm
Knife Open: 170 mm

Maintenance tips:
Sharpen occasionally using a whetstone.

Clean and wipe over with Camellia oil before storing to avoid rusting.

When the caulking becomes loose after long use, place it on something hard like an anvil and tap on it with a hammer to adjust.
When the caulking is too tight to open the blade, hit the knife on the table with the "Chikiri (tail)" faced down.
As Higonokami knives are handmade, each Higonokami has its own characteristics and its tightness is not always the same.

Beautiful Japanese folding knife

It's sharp, beautifully hand made. Can even suspend from a cord or key ring. Forged. Brass handle. A real beauty.
