Itto Ryu Tsuchime Higonokami folding knife

Another great job is done... I brought back to the former glory this great example of Japanese workmanship. The San-Mai (three-layer) blade was badly distressed and a bit rusty.

If you like traditional and ancestral Japan, this knife is made for you! This old-looking soft-iron hammered handle and blade will dive you into another century and country. This cut is excellent with this Aogami core carbon steel blade. It needs a bit of maintenance to keep it clean, but it worths it.

Higonokami Knives are traditionally made non-locking folding knives made in Japan. Most class as 'legal carry' in the UK but as always, please check blade length and local laws before purchasing.
