MINI HIGONOKAMI | LTG’S JAPANESE POCKET KNIFE

hi, i’m back from holidays – time to get my haircut refreshed! so the circle is closed with this post, because tomorrow morning i have a date with OLLI “THE BARBER”. when i got my last cut nearly four weeks ago OLLI gave me a MINI HIGONOKAMI as a present – AWESOME. he made me really happy with this surprise and i must tell you that i never heard about HIGONOKAMI before. as a japanese tradition every young man is owning such a knife. the blade of a HIGONOKAMI interprets the shape of a traditional japanese sword blade made of a special three layer carbonate steel. the blade is bedded in a sheath of folded metal sheet without an adjustment. the knife will be opened with an “ear”. the HIGONOKAMI could be seen as the archetype of a switchblade – so far so good. my MINI HIGONOKAMI has a bladesize of 40 mm and the width of blade measures 2,45 mm. the complete length is just about 90 mm and the weight about is about 16g. i wear it with the lanyard of my REDMOON purse – great combo. and i love the smart tones of the little bell. OLLI – thanks again! pics | LTG

  1. Ah, I love the Higonokami. I have like three of them, including the mini.I worked in a clothing shop sometime ago, and I managed to purchase some Higonokamis for the store. When people asked, why the store started started selling knives, I always said \”What knife? This is the best pencil sharpener in the world and it comes straight from Japan\” and then they were like \”Really? Cool, let me have one of those\”They make the perfect gift.
