HiGOOnokami

Here's one hot off the bench.

It's my new interpretation of the "higonokami" (traditional Japanese friction folder).

Overall length closed- 4.5 inches
Overall length open- 6.75 inches
Blade- 1095 steel
Handle- mild steel

Sweet!

How did you get that pattern on the handle? Etching?

Thanks.

It's done with a texturing hammer I made a long time ago. I hit it harder towards the butt end and lighter towards the front to make a transition to flat.
