Higonokami Knife | A new Style of Higonokami comes to KS!

A piece of traditional Japanese knife history, the Higonokami Knife is coming back for a second project on Kickstarter! Each blade is made by hand, using traditional forging techniques, to create a truly valuable piece of craftsmanship. What's more to make these items stand out from the fake knives that has been plaguing online retailers claiming to sell true Higonokami, these will be stamped in a way to help you recognise it being a true Higonokami Blade!

Easy to use and maintain

The main benefit of the higonokami knife is that the core of the knife is a sharp aogami steel or SK Steel, that has been put inbetween a larger iron core, which is softer and lets the knife take more hits while also keeping sharper for longer!
