Higo No Kami // Folding Steak Knife + Sheath // Small
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.
Whether purchased for yourself or as a gift, the Higo-No Kami is a possession of understated elegance, handcrafted in Japan.
