Best Made Brass Higo Knife

Mar 14, 2017

Category: Gear

It was in 1896 that the first Higonokami pocket knife was invented in Japan. This friction folder consisted solely of a simple handle that was hinged to a swinging blade. Still, it became a wildly popular design and continues to be widely produced today. Take, for instance, this example from Best Made Co.

With a blade crafted from SK5 high-carbon steel and a simple brass handle, this knife is proof that elegance and functionality can exist together in something incredibly simple. This brand’s version comes in your choice of three blade sizes – 2.1, 3, or 3.7 inches – features inscriptions on either side that read “Best” and “Made,” are made in Japan, and ships with the brand’s Knife Handbook (which features information on care and sharpening). These simple everyday carry blades start at just $38. [Purchase]
