Higonokami Hikari

The blade of the knife is made of high-carbon blue Yasugi steel - 62 HRC, which is hidden in the brass handle. The V-shaped blade allows you to use the knife with either hand. The blade opens with the Chikiri lever and remains open with friction, without a separate locking mechanism.

Handcrafted in Japan.

Be careful, carbon steel requires special maintenance: these blades blacken with use, this oxidation is inevitable and cannot be avoided. Do not wash the knife, just wipe the blade after use. It is a good idea to regularly wipe it with an oil-soaked cloth.

When the knife is new, the blade may be a little taut but will loosen over time. If it becomes too loose, it can be tightened by hammering the pivot - a great feature of the Higonokami knife.
