A perfectly-sized (4" closed) Japanese-made Higo knife, with black handle and soft-iron blade. Hand-made (Japan) and hand-finished at our shop here in Dallas; no two will look the same. This is not a fancy knife, and our finishing process introduces cosmetic imperfections (so it won't look brand-spanking new!). It is a knife that gets the job done; cuts your apple or cigar, opens a box, slashes your pesky neighbor's tires.
The soft steel produces a very sharp edge, easily honed as necessary. If you live in more humid areas or use it on fruit, a drop of oil (even olive oil) every once in a while won't hurt.
If you need a smaller Higo, look for Just Lefty, elsewhere on our shop. If brass is more your speed, look for Townes. Blued steel? Kind of Blue is your choice.
Consider adding a knife care-kit, which includes a small sharpener and oil (shown with Townes). Details under Knife Care-Kit.
