This knife is the emblematic Japanese pocket knife, particularly popular with schoolchildren until the 1960s, when minors were forbidden to carry knives.
Behind its apparent simplicity, this knife is highly effective, with a typical Japanese blade in San Maï carbon steel (3-layer laminate), sharpened and pointed for optimum cutting performance. Whether for everyday household chores or arts and crafts.
The handle of this higonokami, in brown brass with a beautiful patinated texture, makes it an original and elegant accessory. The blade folds easily into the handle thanks to a small lens forged into the blade.
