Japanese Gardening Knife

Regular price £33.00 Save £-33.00

Traditional Japanese blade design - super sharp, ultimate simplicity, perfectly balanced.  This folding knife, made hi-carbon steel with a brass handle, now comes in two sizes.  It stays open when you need it and closed when you don't, without any locking device, just a flick of the finger.

The Higonokami folding knife has been made for many years by the Nagao Kanekoma factory in Japan and at least one knife can be found in most Japanese homes.

The tool is hot forged from high carbon steel and ground by hand. Like all Japanese knives, it is incredibly sharp and can be easily re-sharpened.  The brass handle sits comfortably in the hand and the knife slips easily into any pocket.

A real hit with Joff, our Head Gardener.  Makes a wonderful gift or treat for yourself.
