Whether carried as a tasteful pocketknife or a personal steak knife, this beautifully crafted Shun Higo-No Kami folding knife is a handsome accessory. This style of knife is considered to be the first Japanese pocketknife when it was first created in 1890's Meiji-era Japan. A key characteristic of the traditional Higo-No Kami is that when the knife is closed, part of the blade tang protrudes and can be used like a small lever to open the knife with one hand. A number of refinements have been made to the original design. It still features easy one-handed opening, however a locking system has been added. A locking liner secures the blade open when in use so it cannot accidentally close, endangering one's fingers. The VG10 steel blade is slim and razor-sharp, making it perfect for use as a steak knife. The ebony PakkaWood® handle features in inlaid mosaic crest and folds to just 3 1/2" when closed. The knife also includes a beautiful leather sheath, perfect for a gift.

The Shun Higo-No Kami features:
  • Hand-sharpened to 16º double-bevel blade
  • VG10 steel
  • Ebony Pakkawood with inlaid mosaic crest
  • 3.5 inch blade length
  • Handcrafted in Japan
  • Includes leather sheath

  • MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your knives by hand and immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts, as they may stain the surface of your knives.
  • For longer lasting knives, cut on a wooden cutting board. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after using your knives.
  • It's best to store your Shun knife so the edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Shun knives don't need frequent sharpening because they are made from 32 extremely durable layers of stainless steel.
  • Lifetime limited warranty from Shun with normal use and proper care.
  • Made in Japan
  • Free lifetime sharpening from Shun. Pay only for shipping; $5 for the first knife, $2 for each additional knife. Please print and complete this form and ship to Shun with the knives you'd like to have sharpened.
