"Higonokami" is a type of Japanese folding pocket knife originating in 1894 in Miki city, Hyogo Prefecture.  A Higonokami knife has a blade that folds into a handle normally made of folded over sheet metal.  When in use, the user can hold their thumb over a lever called Chikiri to prevent the blade from folding.  It's unique double-edged V-shaped blade means you can use either side, regardless of dominant hand. 

Higonokami knives are renowned for their simplicity and long-lasting quality. Today there remains only one manufacturer still making authentic Higonokami knives. 

The blade is made from an inlayed aogami blue paper steel surrounded by a brass handle.  Stamped on the handle you will find the Higonokami trademark. 

Blade length: 2 7/8" (7.3 cm), Handle Length: 3 3/4" (9.5cm)
