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.

IZUSHIBUKI: water droplet finish

The name of this finish is izushibuki in Japanese. Loosely translated, this means "splashes", which perfectly describes this finish that makes it look like there are water droplets on the handle. The light reflection on the handle is truly spectacular and utterly unique. The handles are lightly textured between the drops. The droplets themselves are flat. The finish is available in rosé, black and blue.

Pretty cheaply put together but the steel is awesome. Takes a wicked, wicked edge and is easy peasy to sharpen for such a hard steel. Looks like a little Samurai sword. Tends to rust easily but is easily scrubbed off with a bit of vinegar and the scrubby part of a kitchen sponge.

Feels cheap, although it is a piece of the history of japan, the steel used is blue paper steel and it is handmade. It feels like it was done in a minute with many abnormalities (blade play, extra friction between the blade and the handle at some points when closing and opening. Hand made knives are sometimes more precise and detailed than machined ones, therefore saying "hand made" is not an excuse for such a poorly built product. In conclusion, it is a good steel (abnormal blade) with a pressed sheet of stainless steel around it.
