The first Higonokami knives were made as early as 1896 in the Japanese town of Miki. After the last samurai were forbidden to carry swords in public, many blacksmiths started to make knives. Higo no Kami was then an honorary title for especially powerful samurai, and it quickly became the name for the knives produced there.

Since the production in the Japanese town of Miki the classic Higonokami has hardly changed.

The Higonokami Kinzoku Damascus is a lovely example of the knifemaker's art. The handle is made of one piece of folded metal, the knife is opened by a lever (Chikiri) on the back of the blade. By pressing the lever while holding the knife, the blade is kept open.

    Higonokami Kinzoku Damascus review

    Posted by Ravi on 3rd Jun 2021

    Picked up this version after falling in love with Damascus blades. It is a simple design but beautiful and easy to use. Cutting open boxes with this is a breeze but watch your fingers, the sharpness on this will astound you. Overall a fantastic purchase and reasonably priced.
