Made in Japan, the Hikari Higo Style AUS-8 Canvas Micarta Hunter Knife showcases outstanding functional design with an eye toward traditional Japanese aesthetics. The blade features a drop point profile and plain edge, offering optimal versatility in the kinds of cuts you can make. It is delicately forged, with 33 layers of Damascus steel coating each side of the blade, and a core made of AUS-8 steel. AUS-8 is highly similar to 440B steel, with a carbon content close to 0.75%, offering excellent edge retention and sharpness, as well as a Rockwell Hardness rating of 58.
Styled after the original Japanese Higo knives, the tang overextending the handle is a feature that was traditionally used to hold down the blade while operating, as Higo knives had no locking mechanisms. While this folder knife draws visual design inspiration from the traditional Higo knife, it features a modern liner lock, keeping your open blade fixed in place.The milled canvas micarta handle is exceptionally easy to grip, warm to the touch, and lightweight, offering a comfortable ergonomic hold, and only improving in wet conditions. Seat this handsome folder knife in your pocket or hook it on to your lanyard: it'll serve you well in times of recreation and in times of need.
