Best Made Japanese Higo pocket knife

Best Made Japanese Higo pocket knife

Traditionally known as the Higonokami, the “Higo” knife has been produced by Miyamoto Manufacturing Co. since the late 1920s. First developed in 1894 by the hardware wholesaler, Tasaburo Shigematsu and blacksmith Sadaharu Murakami, it quickly rose to great renown in Japan.

Those purveyors of fine outdoorsy stuff, Best Made have collaborated with Miyamoto Manufacturing, to produce their own Higo knife, featuring a blade of laminated Japanese white steel with a tsuchime (hand-hammered) finish.  Nice…!
