Higo Knife

The “Higonokami short knife” or HIGO is a traditional Japanese pocket knife that dates back to 1894. Now being forged by fifth generation blacksmith Mitsuo Nagao, the company decided to make the “short knife” a folding blade four generations ago, and thus the HIGO was born. They are crafted with steel from the Yasugi District thru a process called “the fire polishing”…how cool is that? 

The Kanji on the blade translates to "Higo no Kami Sadakoma".
