Full description

Everything about the Japanese Higo no Kami pocket knife emanates tradition. In the past everyone in Japan, including school children, used to carry a knife like this. The Higo pocket knife was used to sharpen pencils and for many other tasks.

The blade is easy to open with the 'chikiri' (the lever at the end of the blade). As is common for this type of knife, it doesn't have a lock and the blade completely disappears inside the handle when closed.

Aogami (blue paper steel)

Blue paper steel is a modern high-performance steel. It is made by removing impurities from SK steel and adding extra tungsten and chromium. This improves the sharpness retention. However, this steel is not corrosion-resistant.

Sterling silver finish

The normal colour of brass is golden yellow. However, the handles of this Higonokami are coated with a layer of sterling silver.

Specifications

Finish blade satin, brut de forge
Right or left-handed symmetrical
Blade shape reverse tanto

There are US reviews of Higonokami which show a much cheaper knife out performing anything this blade would be capable of. I doubt very much that it comes from Japan and more likely from a shed in China. I have a twenty year old kitchen devil that’s sharper and which cost 3 quid. I bought another on a deal which was supposed to have carbon fibre handle- the handle is probably better steel than the blade. These remind me of the Blackpool Ghurka knives that In the seventies used to adorn the walls of council homes next to the flying geese however in both cases the flying geese were and are more authentic. Unless it’s just a gimmicky souvenir you want from Germany then don’t buy Higonokami from here as they’re not worth the tin they are made from

Rest assured that these Higo knives are all made in Japan. And seeing the other positive reviews it's more likely that something is wrong with your particular knife. I'll contact you to sort out a return.

Quite expensive for a small knife but the quality and craftsmanship deserve it. Looks quite simple at first but the blade is good and small details make it. The action is smooth and although it doesn't lock is good for small everyday tasks. It should age well and would make a great heirloom/hand-down piece. Good for: Simple style Elegant looks Durable Legal carry/EDC
