Higo pocket knife MY-120Y, 3-layered blade 10 cm - Higonokami
The blade of this version is made of carbon steel. This type of steel can hold an extremely sharp edge and that is why they chose this material. This carbon steel core is layered between a softer type of steel, which improves is the strength of the blade. You can easily open the knife with the 'chikiri' (the lever at the end of the blade). As is traditional, this type of knife does not have a locking system en disappears entirely into the handle when closed.
