In the late 1890's, Japan was undergoing a rapid change from a feudal state to that of a capitalist one. The demand for Samurai swords was dwindling and the blacksmiths were struggling. These changing times gave rise to the “Higonokami” or “short knife”.

Knife specs are taken from a randomly selected knife. These specs may vary from knife to knife due to the handmade nature of our products.
