One of a kind friction folder knife forged from damascus stainless steel with a dark buffalo horn handle, based on the ageless Higonokami design. From daily use, to camping, hiking and fishing; this weatherproof knife tackles all sort of situations.


A core of the hardest powder metallurgical steel SG-2* makes the blade wear-resistant and tough. The 64-layered suminagashi plating, made of nickel and rustproof stainless steel, gives it a spectacular appearance. This steel impresses with its outstanding durability, sharpness retention and resistance to corrosion. The blade on this model is etched darker than other stainless damascus models, to harmonise with the dark handle.


*(C 1.3%, Cr 15%, Mo 3%, V 2%)


Handle made from smooth, durable and lightweight buffalo-horn* with a 3mm brass lanyard hole. The handle is buffed smooth, and only the rivet section is left in a raw carved state to highlight the natural properties of this beautiful material.


Warm to touch, ever shiny and weatherproof, a pleasure to hold! 


*Color of the horn is an even black colour with some very subtle lighter (nearly ghostly) shades


It is the ideal companion for long travels as the blade and handle materials are virtually maintenance free!
