Enjoy the beauty and precision of Japan’s legendary Shun cutlery anytime with the Higo Nokami Gentleman’s Knife. It features a slim profile, a folding blade and is light weight. Keep it at the ready at all times and you’ll never find yourself without a fine blade again. It’s a timeless piece as well, since the Higo, that dates back to the mid 19th century, is regarded as Japan’s first pocketknife.

The fold out blade is composed of high-carbon stain-resistant VG-10 steel, perfectly sized for cutting almost anything. Its PakkaWood handle is resin-infused for the lasting moisture resistance and each handle is inlaid with a silver and brand emblem from an ancient samurai family crest. The Higo is a simple looking mechanism that holds a 3 3/4″-long blade firmly in place by the knife’s 7 1/2″-long handle while in use. It’s a sleek and reliable piece that’s sure to never let you down and remain sharp in the process. Available now for $120. [Purchase]
