Higonokami Woody Japanese Wood Handled Folding Pocket Knife 183mm

Sale price$58.00

The Higonokami knife is a special folding pocket knife from Japan. These unique, lightweight Japanese pocket knives were invented by Kanekoma knife factory in the 1890s. Their popularity spread quickly, and during the early 1900s, over 40 companies and 200 blacksmiths were producing them. Today, Kanekoma is the sole trademark holder, and the only company left producing the Higonokami Japanese pocket knife. If you want to be sure you’ve got a 100% authentic Higonokami knife, the only way is to buy a Kanekoma knife.

The Higonokami Woody is a unique folding knife that stands out from the traditional higonokami thanks to its distinctive wooden handle, available in three great colors: Walnut, Grey, and Red. While it embraces the traditional higonokami aesthetics, the addition of a wooden handle introduces a touch of warmth and elegance to the classic design.

The blade of this folding pocket knife follows the Higonokami tradition, featuring a double-bevel reverse tanto shape that excels in both left and right-handed use. What sets it apart is the use of VG10 stainless steel, a material renowned for its exceptional sharpness, durability, and resistance to rust. While this may make it slightly less sharp than the aogami carbon steel higonokami we offer, it adds a significant amount of rust resistance, making this the ideal tool for everyday carry, camping, fishing, or more.

The handle, expertly carved for added grip, ensures a comfortable and secure hold, making this Higonokami Woody Folding Knife a practical and stylish everyday carry tool. Whether you choose the rich tones of Walnut, the subtle sophistication of Grey, or the bold statement of Red, each variant is a testament to Nagao Kanekoma's commitment to quality and innovation.

Carry a piece of Japanese craftsmanship in your pocket with the Higonokami Woody – a folding knife that seamlessly marries tradition with contemporary style.
