The Higanokami knife was originally commissioned in 1894. The first blade was made by blacksmith Sadaharu Murakami for a hardware wholesaler. Its simple and durable construction quickly made it a favorite, and soon 50 different companies were manufacturing knives in this style. Then, in 1961, after a political assassination, knives like this one were outlawed.
Today, Miyamoto Manufacturing is one of the few still producing this timeless item. Set in a folded sheet of brass, the blade is made of white steel with no lock mechanism. Hand-forged and remarkably resilient, this blade is a tiny slice of history, and a reliable, pocket-friendly accessory.
Certain items you can't afford to get wet. Whether it's medication, cash, or notes, this stainless steel key safe is pocket-sized peace of mind. The water-tight design is resistant to everything life may throw at you, and the screw-on keychain top lets you keep it close by at all times.
About 400 years ago, Bavarian peasants were using this very same design to tackle all kinds of day-to-day tasks. The B. W. Baker version of the historic style is for self-starters, for those who know what work is and want to do it for themselves. Slightly smaller than Svord's flagship peasant knife, the mini opens with a simple flick of the wrist.
