Full Product Description

Dine in style with the Shun Higo Nokami personal steak knife. This beautifully crafted folding knife is an extremely handsome accessory, whether carried as a tasteful pocketknife or a personal steak knife. First manufactured in 1896 in Meiji-era Japan, this style of knife is considered to be the first Japanese pocketknife. One of the key characteristics of the traditional Higo Nokami is that when the knife is closed, part of the blade tang protrudes and can be used like a small lever to open the knife with one hand. With a locking liner that secures the blade open when in use so it cannot accidentally close, the VG10 "super steel" blade is slim and razor-sharp. The ebony PakkaWood handle features an inlaid mosaic crest, and the lightweight design fits nicely into a suit pocket. It includes a leather sheath for safe storage.
