The Higonokami knife was originally made in Japan starting in the late 1800s and is characterized by its lack of a locking mechanism. The style was exceedingly popular in Japan until 1961 when the blades were banned. Still, a few craftsmen carry on this tradition today. This pocket-sized version comes in with a raw steel motif that lends it a more aged feel. The slim profile makes it comfortable in the pocket. Each blade is hand-forged with the maker’s stamp on it.
