Shun Higo Nokami Personal Folding Steak Knife with Sheath

The Shun Higo Nokami personal folding steak knife is the perfect gift for any steak connoisseur. Take this handy pocket-knife anywhere and you'll always be prepared to make the cut. Considered to be the first Japanese pocket knife, the timeless Higo design dates back to before the 1850s, and since has been updated for a safer and easier to use design while still keeping its original ideals. Made from a high-carbon, VG-10 stainless steel construction, this high-quality blade will slice through most meats and fruits with ease, making a clean cut every time. The razor-sharp blade measures 3.5", and when fully opened, the knife measures 7.5" overall. Like the traditional Higo design, this knife includes a lever for easy one-handed opening. This knife also includes a safety locking system to ensure that the knife doesn't accidentally close while cutting or handling, an improvement on the original design. The ebony PakkaWood handle is made from a resin-infused natural hardwood, making it waterproof, durable, comfortable, and bacteria-resisting. Inlaid in the middle of this beautifully designed handle is a small silver and brass mosaic emblem from an ancient samurai family crest. Along with the knife, this set also includes a leather carrying case and a use and care instruction booklet. If you're looking for the perfect gift for any steak-lover in your life (including yourself), look no further than the Shun Higo Nokami personal folding steak knife. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan. Lifetime warranty. Shun item number DM5900.

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of Shoon) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.

Opening and closing your Higo-No Kami

  • Holding the knife in two hands and with your fingers out of the path of the blade, place your index finger on the top of the lever and slowly apply pressure to open the blade. Continue applying pressure until the blade is fully open and locks into place.
  • To close the blade, hold the knife handle in one hand. Turn the knife so that you can see the interior of the handle. on the left side of the handle, you will see that the steel liner is positioned behind the blade. This is the lock. With your thumb, press the lock to the left so hat it no longer blocks the blade.
  • With your other hand, hold the back of the blade (away from the edge) and guide the blade back into the handle, keeping your fingers and thumb out of the way.

Use and Care:

Hand wash your blade with gentle dish soap. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Never leave your knife sitting in a sink full of soapy water. Drying

After hand washing, dry immediately using a soft, absorbent dishtowel. Leaving water or any dampness on your knife can cause rusting. Allowing it to air dry for a little while before storing helps, too.
Store your knife in the sheath that came with it. Do not store it unsheathed in a drawer.
