Product Story
This beautifully crafted folding knife is an extremely handsome accessory, whether carried as a tasteful pocketknife or a personal steak knife. First manufactured in 1896 in Meiji-era Japan, this style of knife is considered to be the first Japanese pocketknife. One of the key characteristics of the traditional Higo-No Kami is that when the knife is closed, part of the blade tang protrudes and can be used like a small lever to open the knife with one hand. The Shun Higo-No Kami does indeed include the traditional lever for easy one-handed opening. However, Shun has also made a number of refinements on the original design. For example, the traditional knife did not include a locking system. The Shun Higo-No Kami does. A locking liner secures the blade open when in use so it cannot accidentally close, endangering the user's fingers. The VG10 super steel blade is slim and razor-sharp, making it perfect for use as a personal steak knife and perhaps provoking a little envy from your dining companions. The Shun Higo-No Kami is six inches long when opened and folds to just three and a half inches when closed. The ebony PakkaWood handle features an inlaid mosaic crest. This slender, lightweight knife fits nicely into a suit pocket and includes a sumptuous leather sheath. Whether purchased for yourself or as a gift, the Higo-No Kami is a possession of understated elegance.
