As with anything, you get what you pay for. These seem to be on the lover end of the Higonokami scale. But you can not infer anything about the quality of this knifedrop by googleing Higonokami . It is like comparing Bowies. There is a wast number of makers with varying skills/quality control. So the one Nick Shabazz rewies can be far removed from the knife being sold here. Looking at the pictures here you get your moneys worth. I have one costing twice as much with a brass handle. I do not see much difference. Maybe a difference can be found when handling it. Here pictured with the other two folded metal handle knives, the Douk-douk and the Mercator.
Ok massdrop - even though you never read these - you really could do your customers a lot of help by fixing up the descriptions for these Higonokami drops.
1. People who buy one looking for a normal inexpensive knife are disappointed when they receive this crude primitive knife.
2. People looking for a cool historic Higonokami are disappointed that they can't tell if this one is genuine or not, and because the description is too vague.
I think if you do a bit of research into these knives you'll soon know how to write the description to reach the right audience.
cool way to lose a finger. count me.....out. lol

Why are you applying enough pressure to the spine of your knife to remove a finger?

Ummmm, yeah, sorry, what? Why?

Lot's of ugly with this knife

Like he said, good ones and bad ones. I have two Higos and niether of them are bad like that.
I have this in brass and bought it a few years ago, not on MD. The box, which I still have actually is gold and has a design on the top of the box with a blue label. It was packed in Japanese newspapers sent from Japan.

I think I paid 30-34usd for it. It's still sharp to this day! It's my office box knife lol.
Well, i did some research and according to uniquetactical.com only the ones that come in blue and gold boxes are the authentic ones. Although anyone could fake a box if they could fake a knife. So the ones we got in plastic could be fake, or could be authentic if the manufacturer switched to plastic. Perhaps md can clarify it for us, since authenticity/historical accuracy are a big part of the value of this knife.
We loves this little knives. It does looks a little sloppy like hands made but that's what makes it so interesting and unique. the blade is really sharp and we loves that it hides in the handle.
Blade length is 3-5/8” long not the 2.6 as advertised by Massdrop. This is a much larger blade than I anticipated

Massdrop, you need to get the basics right. Very misleading to people that live in areas with strict knife laws

It isn’t a deal breaker with me because I live in a state that has relaxed knife laws, but I know will not this knife as planned. It is way too long

mine is 2.58"
What is the engraving on the handle?

Japanese word of the brand and the maker etc.
Sold out of black stainless steel. Guess I'll wait for the next run.
Made in Japan? If not then that's a deal breaker.
What is the manufacturer of this knife?
Just a heads up. I got mine from the last drop, and it started rusting within a month or so. I hadn't even used it, just carried it a few times.

Lovely knife, and the rust makes it seem more antique I guess, but the quality is what you'd expect for a $15 knife.

Yup , hi carbon steel will rust if it's not oiled and sharpened often. It will take a razor sharp edge though.
Nickkford
carbon steel will do that . almost impossible to keep them oiled and still carry them in pockets...just dont let the rust stay on em it will pit the shit outa the steel..but then like you said 10-15 dollar knife.
