Crafted with precision and passion, this handmade Higonokami knife stands as a testament to the artistry and skill of its maker. Meticulously fashioned from 52100 high carbon steel, this blade embodies the timeless essence of Japanese inspired craftsmanship, where tradition meets innovation.


The choice of 52100 high carbon steel speaks volumes about the dedication to quality.
