Higonokami knives

The Higonokami knife is a type of Japanese folding knife that was first made in the late 19th century. It is named after the town of Higo, located in Kumamoto prefecture in Japan, where it was created.

The Higonokami knife is characterized by a simple shaped carbon steel blade, often adorned with a dragon engraving. The handle of the knife is typically made of steel and is often folded over itself to form a finger guard. This knife is often used as a pocket or utility knife for everyday tasks.

The Higonokami knife is considered a classic example of Japanese craftsmanship and is still made today by skilled artisans. It is popular among collectors and knife enthusiasts for its simple and elegant aesthetic, as well as its quality of construction and durability.
