Description

The first Higonokami knives were made as early as 1896 in the Japanese town of Miki. After the last samurai were forbidden to carry swords in public, many blacksmiths started to make knives. Higo no Kami was then an honorary title for especially powerful samurai, and it quickly became the name for the knives produced there.

Since the production in the Japanese town of Miki the classic Higonokami has hardly changed.

The Higonokami Kinzoku Damascus is a lovely example of the knifemaker's art. The handle is made of one piece of folded metal, the knife is opened by a lever (Chikiri) on the back of the blade. By pressing the lever while holding the knife, the blade is kept open

  1. unbelievable priceReview by

    A hand forged damascus clad san mai blade for 26 quid how is this possible. It will need sharpening to reach it's true potential , japanese water stones are the most successful sharpening medium to use as they cut the extremely hard steel whilst polishing it to a super fine edge. Mine will slice wavey cuts down news paper and is absolutely hair popping sharp , the grind geometry is perfect for slicing through vegetable matter and meat, it will also carve wood with ease. Don't let the bargain price put you off to be honest these higo will hold their own against much more expensive knifes I took a De Villiers damascus micro impi out of my pocket to give mine a rotation , and the higo out preforms it on the cutting front ang also has quality's such as being hammer forged rather than cnc made. This is a time tested design that will be appreciated by experienced collectors and users, I would highly recommend getting one while Heinnie have them available it's worth ordering the brass handled version at the same time.

  2. Great cutlery knifeReview by

    Good buy if you fancy adding a damascus blade to your collection: it is attractive. It's also accurately made, perfectly centred and the blade stays closed in the handle by friction, as it's meant to.

    Pure cutting, however, is not it's strength. After sharpening it will cut a piece of paper side on, just, but the blade geometry means it is not a slicer. The approx 3mm thick stock works against that given its shallow belly and sabre grind. Mind, try snapping it in two and you will struggle: it's plenty strong :-)

    So, OK for the money and an attractive knife for your collection but it won't be your go-to cutter. Would make a very good, compact, UK-legal, food-eating cutlery knife.
