Sakai Kikumori - Higonokami Folding Pocket Knife

  • Sold out

Description

Traditional Japanese folding pocket knife.


This knife is very light, it’s so thin that it’s barely noticeable in the pocket. Nice thumb driven flip action.


The carbon steel blade holds a good edge.


A lovely, useful pocket knife.


 Please note- This knife is not brass coloured as it looks in some of these photos, it’s the colour of polished metal, more chrome/silver in appearance!

Sakai, in the Osaka region of Japan has been a thriving hub for Japanese blade making for over 600 years. Sakai Kikumori, itself approaching 100 years in business, continue to work with some of the areas most skilled craftspeople to produce a broad range of cutlery.


A note on carbon steel - Like many others we at Community Cutlery favour carbon over stainless steel for its ability to take a keener edge and hold it for longer, for this privilege we need to care for our carbon products with a little more consideration, particularly when it comes to washing. Once you’ve finished with your knife we recommend giving it a quick wash and a thorough dry, as if left wet it will start to rust, surprisingly quickly. If this does happen then take a dry scourer and lightly give it a rub, another rinse and a good dry, it should come off with relative ease. With use you will also notice a light change in the colour of the blade, this patina is natural, beautiful and to be cherished, it’s like yo knife developing its own fingerprint!


And for many reasons - Never put your knives in the dishwasher
