It's extremely sharp & very easy to put the razors edge on it again & again.

The design is simple and elegant, the blade shape is wonderful- I love the slight curve.

As the product description states, it is hand forged without question. Anyone can look at mine and still see the marks on the thumb piece where it was held by tongs during the forging process, which adds character to the knife.

Out of the box, it was not as sharp as it could be. The brass handle was open very wide at the bottom, which allowed the last inch of the blade to come in contact with it, causing micro-nicks in the blade. Something that I thought was going to be easily fixed, and it was after much trial and error.

I've sharpened many different styles of blades made out of different types of steel, both stainless and non, and every time I tried to sharpen it, I would find more micro-nicks in the edge, though it was razor sharp. It wasn't a defect in the forging or the steel, but in my sharpening techniques. Anyone purchasing this knife needs to know that you must be very gentle with it. Unlike other carbon steel knives that I own and use on a regular basis, you cannot put pressure on the blade while sharpening. This caused the micro-nicks in mine each time I attempted to remove them. Basically, allow the edge of the blade to rest on the stone or sharpening pad with only the weight of the knife as you sharpen.

To get a real scary sharp edge, I finished it off with a DMT Extra Fine sharpening pad, and I haven't been able to dull it yet.

The only con I can find with this knife is I don't want to carry it in my pocket because of fear of damaging it somehow. The blade is so beautiful as is, that I cannot stand the thought of it developing a pantina from use because I do use my pocket knife for everything imaginable. So, in order to remedy this problem I've already decided to order a second, this time a medium. Higo no Kami Dai(sizeM), Nagaokoma, Import from JAPAN

The blade is ultra sharp and seriously quality. I can tell it was sharpened by hand, and it doesnt come out of the brass part easily so u can safely keep in ur pocket. Took a long time to arrive cause it comes all the way from Japan. Fun item.

Got this for one of my good friends. He said he once he'd risen the ranks of the company he works for now and became CEO, he'd force people who fail him to kill themselves with this knife. Currently reconsidering my choice of gifts. And friends.

I bought this knife as a gentlemen's knife replacement to home and restaurant steak knives. It was exactly as expected which was roughly finished. I smoothed and polished the handle and blade. It is quite satisfying to cleanly and elegantly slice a nice steak.

A great knife. I have all three of the Higonokami knives, and it's cousin, the Higonaifu. This particular Higonokami is similar in size to the Higonaifu. Like with all Higonokami knives, inspect it to see it you need to do any additional work. Mine just needed a little bit of filing behind the tip.

This is my third Higonokami. I love everything about it. Simple, sharp (I get them even sharper). Lightweight as well. I mean genius knife of great quality and unmatched character.

Hard to find in Japan (no kidding) as Japan is clamping down on "weapons". A trip to the local tool mega store will find enough box cutters to take over a medium sized country but not one Higo no Kami. Very sharp basic knife, holds an edge but DOES NOT HOLD THE BLADE OPENED OR CLOSED VERY WELL. Not a complaint just an observation. These do not belong in your pocket, make a sheath or use from an organized tool box (you do not what to go "fishing" around blindly for one of these).

Came out of the box sharp enough to slice paper into shreds, after a few minutes of sharpening on a 1500 grit whetstone it is beyond shaving sharp. It is a great knife at a great price, definitely not a "perfect" mass produced knife. I'd recommend this knife due to its simplicity and laser like sharpness.a little sharpening with a good stone, you will have a scary sharp knife.
