This Higo kogatana knife is fully hand forged by master blacksmith mr. Motosuko Nagao. The blad is thick and heavy and easy to sharpen. It is made out of grade #1 'aogami' (sometimes called Blue Paper after the packaging in the factory) carbon steel. The 'kogatana' is traditionally placed into a special slot in the chuba, the ring on a Samurai sword, and it would have been used for small cutting chores. Since it is no longer allowed to carry a Samurai Sword, this nicely wrapped Kogatana pocket knife hints to the times of the Samurai.
