A special edition foldable knife forged from a savaged elevator cable of high carbon steel, based on the ageless higonokami design. Similar to the other Higo's, but more elegant and slighly sturdier/heavier due to the hardwood handle.


I tried to capture the beauty of the dark cables lines and the subtle shimmering of the encrusted nickel; yet its true beauty will only fully strike you when you hold it in your hands. 


7-8 cm (3") long blade | 5.5-6 cm (2"+) cutting edge


NEW! The blade comes now with encrusted nickel strands and the handle with a 3mm brass lanyard hole. 


NEW! New blades are forged with a core of silver steel for enhanced cutting performance.


Available with different hardwoods depending on salvaged stock (see current options below). The depicted knifes with handles made of ziricote (dark) and sheoak (red).


This knife is individually crafted upon receipt of an order, thus sizes & grain (of wood & steel) may vary lightly, yet the overall proportions, materials and craftsmanship remain unchanged. Slight adaptations and special wishes can be discussed.


Please only buy if you have sharpening skills and stones, or plan to acquire them. Not for heavy duty applications. If properly cared for they should outlast the owner. 


Legal carry in most countries.
