Motosuke Nagao Higonokami Aogami Waterdrop
Motosuke Nagao Higonokami with special water drop decoration,
This Japanese Higonokami knife has a core of Japanese Aogami # 1 "Blue paper" carbon steel (non-stainless). This double-sided sharpened knife is completely forged by hand by the only master blacksmith who is allowed to make Higonokami knives (Motosuke Nagao). The blade is sturdy and manually sharpened and is very easy to sharpen yourself. This is the version with a steel handle with a special water drop effect. The water droplets are just like the real thing and are made of a soft silicone resin. This gives this knife a very good grip.
