The Japanese Higonokami folding knife is a very traditional pattern, entirely designed for functionality and simplicity. Trademarks of a Higonokami folding knife is a friction folder (non-locking) build with a blade extension that can be pressed down on when the knife is in the open position for added security. This is knifemaker Hiroaki Ohta's version of this very traditional Japanese design - we commissioned this build in blackwood and smooth stainless steel pivot.
The blade steel on the FK5 model is D2 steel with a two-tone finish, the hollow grinds are a brushed satin finish and a dark black finish on the flats. The edge on this 2 3/4" blade is razor sharp thanks to the D2 steel and the thickness of the blade grinds.
The handle on this Ohta friction folder is a presentation grade blackwood; a material known for it rugged durability along with its timeless look. The entire knife only weights 1.1 oz so it will not weight down your pocket carry. This knife has several upscale finishes with a polished stainless steel pivot and lanyard hole.
Carry this custom made knife with pride, it comes in a specially made black leather slipcase.
