Higonokami is the name of Japanese traditional pocket knives that has been produced since late 19th century.

Its construction is very simple and by mid 1950’s many of them were used by elementary school students as one of their stationary goods. But as time advances this “useful tool” were removed from their stationary products because of the movement of knife control.

Sometimes Higonokami is called Japanese version of Opinel because of its popularity and price. In Japan it used to be a lot of factories that had been produced Higonokami knives, but there’re only a few existing these days. 

The knives are shown on our web-site are special made Higonokami knives by using fine Blue Steel (Aogami) made by Hitachi metal in Japan.
