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.

Carbon steel

Steel with a high concentration of carbon. It is very shock-resistant and also very tough. Some maintenance is required to keep the blade sharp, though. Fortunately, it's a very easy type of steel to sharpen. However, this steel is not corrosion-resistant.

Smaller, less robust than expected. Sharp, nifty, but useful. Needs oiling often to avoid corrosion

This is a nice little knife which I currently use as my "legal carry" pocket knife. I have to say that I was rather surprised that when it showed up it wasn't very sharp, but I supposed that when you are buying something which is hand made, but produced in such quantities that is cheap, one or two will slip through quality control. It is very workman like, slim but sturdy, perfect for my pocket.
