Higonokami Folding Knife
The Higonokami Folding Knife is fashionable and functional, whether you're opening packages, marking wood, sharpening pencils or enjoying lunch. Each knife is handcrafted by the only remaining artisan shop in Japan.
The handle is made from a single sheet of folded brass which protects the exceedingly sharp and durable Aogami "blue steel" blade. This simple design does not have a locking system, instead the friction in the swivel and the force of the user's thumb on the "chikiri" (the tab at the base) keep the blade in place while in use.
The scaling of the steel from the forging process creates a unique tone and pattern on the edge of the blade and the tab at the base.
