Two higonokami friction folders

Recommended Posts

I have these two higonokami friction folders available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/tiaanburgermetalart

Should you wish to purchase but do not want to go through Etsy, send me a private message.

  • The copper handled one with the rose is priced at US$300, add $30 for shipping via courier.
  • The iron handled one with the bunny is priced at $450, add $30 for shipping via courier.

      Yes, airmail is cheaper, but it takes up to six weeks, during which time I am worried sick.  With the courier I can track the package from point to point, and it takes five to seven days.

Specs for the copper handled folder:
The blade is made of Bohler's K510, differentially hardened and tempered for tough blade with a hard edge.
Handle length: 3 3/4" (95mm)
Blade lenght: 3 1/8" (80mm)
Blade width: 5/8" (16mm)



Specs for the iron handled folder:

Blade length: 3 3/16" (80mm).
Blade width: 17/32" (13.5mm)
Blade material: W1 tool steel, differentially hardened and tempered, hand rubbed finish

Handle length: 3 3/4" (94mm)
Handle materials: Wrought iron, sterling silver, fine silver, bronze pin.
Techniques used: hon-zogan, nunome-zogan


Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
