Higonokami

Higonokami肥後守

Japanese Folding Pocket Knife (2¾"/7.1cm)

High carbon steel blade, black handle

Our Higonokami is a strong and very sharp knife. It has a blade 71mm long (so can be carried legally in the UK). The design is characterised by the ‘chikiri’ – the lever used to open the knife. There is no locking mechanism.

The high carbon steel blade is very sharp and keeps its edge well. However it is not stainless so please keep it dry to avoid corrosion.

"Higonokami"

A ‘Higonokami’ is a traditional Japanese folding pocket knife, designed in 1896. These knives were once carried by virtually every person in Japan. The name means “Lord-of-Higo”. Higo was an old province in Japan, on the island of Kyūshū, today’s Kumamoto Prefecture. “Kami”, literally “protector”, was used as an honourable title for Samurai of very high rank bestowed upon them by the shōgun.
