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 Nokami 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 Nokami 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 Nokami 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 Nokami 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 and black lacquered presentation case. Whether purchased for yourself or as a gift, the Higo Nokami is a possession of understated elegance.
