Higonokami

Higonokami

In 1894 Mr. Tasaburo Shigematsu, a hardware wholesaler, introduced a new pocket knife with its blade and sheath folded by installing a small handle “Chikiri (tail)” on the blade, while inspired by the knife he brought back from Kagoshima.

He named it “Higonokami Knife” , and in 1911, at the First Kobe Export Articles Competitive Exhibition, Crown Prince (later Emperor Taisho) liked the Higonokami on display very much and bought one, which is said to have helped its fame further spread.

The Higonikami is a fantastic traditional utility knife at a low cost.
