Description: The Higo Nokami personal gentleman's knife can be used either as an elegant pocket knife or personal steak knife. The design dates back over 150 years, and is considered the first Japanese pocket knife.
First used by Japanese businessmen as a fruit and cheese knife, today it is considered the optimal personal steak knife. The razor sharp edge makes perfectly precise cuts possible, providing superior texture and flavor from any steak. Ebony toned pakkawood and an classy mosaic pin mean this piece will hold its own against the good silver!
The knife comes with a protective leather slip case. Perfect for use in restaurants!
