Higonokami Blue Paper Folding Pocket Knife


This is a genuine handmade Higonokami knife, made by Mr Nagao, the last remaining blacksmith in the guild that is allowed to make Higonokami. They are a simple, cleverly designed, hardworking tool that has remained virtually unchanged in over 160 years.

For those that prefer a little more luxury in their rustic pocket knife, the Blue Paper Higonokami has a laminated blade made from the famous Hitachi Yasuki ‘blue paper’ alloyed carbon steel. Although still very much a handmade tool it has a slightly better finish than the standard knife and comes with a nice folded brass handle.

Carrying a pocket knife in the UK used to be completely normal. After years of not carrying one it is refreshingly liberating and civilised to be able to fetch a nice bit of laminated Japanese steel out of your pocket when you need to open a box, or packet instead of tearing it. As long as the knife conforms to regulations (this one does) and you use it responsibly, this simple pleasure is perfectly legal.

A classic knife with countless uses at a price that won’t break your heart if you accidentally take it through airport security and have to surrender it.

Blade length: 75mm

Case length: 95mm

Case width: 18mm

A great pocket knife
This is my favourite pocket knife. The blade can be easily honed to a razor sharp edge which it keeps for way longer than I thought it would. I keep this in my pocket all the time, I use it to open packages, cut baking paper to size, cut loose threads, etc, etc, etc... Basically anything you can think of.

I cannot recommend this knife enough. A razor sharp blade, easy to get out and put away, well made, and infinitely useful.
