The Shun Higo Nakami Folding Knife is welcome at our table. Yes, this looks and functions like a typical pocket knife, but by no means should you limit this traditional Japanese knife to whittling sticks. Get rid of those useless serrated steak knives and let the Higo Nakami knife proudly cut your beef tenderloins with absolute precision. The Shun Higo Nakami Knife design dates back to the mid 19th century, and is still made by hand in Japan with high-carbon stain-resistant VG-10 steel. The handle is made with resin-infused Pakkawood (long lasting moisture resistance), and detailed with a silver and brass samurai crest.
