Higonokami Black Folding Knife

Sold Out

Like our other folding knives, the simple and rugged construction made it a ubiquitous and long lasting knife in Japan. At the peak of its popularity there were 50 manufacturers producing the knives. In 1961 after a political assassination led to a banning of blades, the popularity waned and now there are very few manufacturers still making them.

The blades are made of white steel and set in a folded sheet of metal. As a friction folder, it has no locking mechanism. The knife is opened using the forged lever tang. The blades are hand-forged and extremely hard but also relatively brittle.
