Story

The elements are simple: blade, rivet, and handle, yet we've found a smith in Sanjo, Japan whose knives are unquestioningly unique and masterfully forged. Textured from tip through handle with a dimpled tsuchime (hand-hammered) finish, each Hammered Higo holds a pattern never to be replicated. Shirogami White steel is chosen for its simplicity and purity, making it the ideal base for a knife that reflects these qualities in design. The thumb lever has precisely forged facets, and the brass rivet is carefully peened - no detail escapes the hammer's blow. At a hard 60 HRC, our Hammered Higo holds a fine slicing edge, while the folded soft iron handle lends a sturdy heft in the hand.

Care
  • Always try to keep the blade clean and dry.
  • If cleaning, wipe with a rag dipped in mineral spirits or a mild detergent and water mixture, or rinse under hot water. Dry quickly and thoroughly afterwards.
  • Apply a thin coat of oil to the blade and folding hinge. About any household lubricant will suffice. This coat of oil will protect your knife from moisture and corrosion.
  • If rust starts to develop on the knife, remove immediately with steel wool or high grit sandpaper.
  • For severe rust open the knife and submerge the blade in a glass of vinegar. The vinegar will dissolve the rust, allowing you to remove it with a high grit wet/dry sandpaper.
  • Never allow the knife to sit submerged in water for an extended period of time.
