Japanese Pocket Knife "Higonokami"
This nice little pocket knife from Nagao in Miki City has a blade core of hard Aogami steel, also known as blue paper steel. The two outer layers of the blade are made of soft iron. This ingeniously combines both elasticity and hardness. The knife is not rustproof and should be oiled occasionally, preferably with camellia oil. Handle made of brass, engraved
