A beautiful variation of a design from Pat Crawford which he had made in Japan and marketed in the 1990s-90s as the 'Key Chain Cutter'. Perhaps Seizo Imai made the originals for him.

I suppose it is/was a patent/trademark violation. :eek:

Only Sal can say for sure. ;)

I love the bevel on the Spyderhole. Looks nice with that steel.

If they make it in S30V/VG-10, I'm in ALL THE WAY. I've always liked the blade shape of the Higonokami, kinda like a clip point and a sheepsfoot had a baby.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.

The blade is called a Wharncliffe, named for James Archibald Stuart-Wortley-Mackenzie, 1st Baron Wharncliffe (1776–1845) by Joseph Rodgers Cutlery Company of Sheffield, England as he was a patron and supporter of the Sheffield cutlery industry.

Blade mods on my Higo. The lanyard looped around the opening lever keeps the knife from opening in the pocket.

Very nice mod, einstein. The lanyard was a clever addition. ;)

Where did you order your higonokami?

Defiantly a good idea, however it seem like a particularly difficult design to modernize.

hand made higonokami based friction folder and folding kiridashi

Postby Jan D. » Tue Feb 11, 2014 2:58 pm

You can do a lot with the principal features of the higonokami.

The friction on these friction folders is adjustable. They are comfortable in the pocket. With a little training they are one handed openers.
These have "peelply" textured hunting orange G10 scales and 1/8" A2 steel blades: I carry a black smooth G10 version as EDC; The blade on the larger folder is 2 1/2":
