The Iron Handle Higo Folder is a durable piece of workmanship, dignified in its visual style and built to last. Seated in your grasp, this knife is balanced and pleasantly weighted, drawing your hand naturally into a cutting motion. The blade is made of a blue paper steel, lending extra sharpness and excellent edge retention to your cut, and the reverse tanto blade profile is astutely modeled after the original Higonokami.
The soft iron handle features a distinctive hollowed out centre and Tsuchime, or forging marks, along its body, extending all along the top of the blade. The tang that overextends the hilt acts as a convenient thumb lever, holding your open blade in place while you operate. Keep this splendid tool somewhere safe, and be the proud owner of a pocket-sized masterpiece.

Not the first purchase we have made from this site, nor will it be the last. As always very speedy shipping, and perfect products ordered. One of the items purchased this time was a beautiful "HIGONOKAMI HIGO FRICTION FOLDER, TSUCHIME HANDLE AND BLUE PAPER CARBON STEEL BLADE". It was even more outstanding in person. Very happy with the purchase!!! Thank you! :)
I held off on purchasing this knife for several weeks somewhat worried that it wouldn't be a quality knife. Well I can assure you this is a quality knife. Simple in concept yet so complex in its build. The workmanship is exquisite and the blade is scary sharp! It's not a small knife and it has some heft to it. I can't see myself carrying it in my pocket to the office but on the weekends in my jean's pocket...maybe. It's definitely a nice addition to my collection and one of the more exotic ones.
