The Higo-no-Kami(肥後の上) folding knife has been made in Miki City, Hyogo Prefecture since 1894. Known in Japan as a Gentleman’s pocket knife or Carpenters knife, the blade is forged with White #2 High-Carbon steel blue, resulting in an exceedingly sharp and durable knife. High-Carbon steels will form a patina which helps act a protectant against rust. This knife has no locking system, but stays open while using the friction of the swivel or the pressure of the user's thumb on its iconic lever or chikiri. The stainless handle is equipped with a hole so you can attach it to a lanyard.
