Higonokami is a Japanese pocketknife, without any delicate locking mechanism. User needs to hold firmly on the extended spine in order to have the blade fixed, simple yet very durable. The history of Higonokami can be dated back to late 19th century, where Higonokami got its name from its main trading market, Kumamoto Prefecture, which was named “Higonokuni” in ancient time. The pocketknife was widely used in a variety of household and outdoor tasks in its early days. It was as well an essential for every Japanese student, who used it to sharpen the pencil before sharpener has become widely popular. The maker, Nagaokoma Seisakusho, was found in the 27th year of Meiji era (1894). It has a history of more than a century and is the only trademark owner of “Higonokami” as of today.
