The blacksmith trade in the Banshu region in the Hyogo prefecture began with forging Katana swords around 400 years ago when Hideyoshi Toyotomi attacked Miki castle. He commissioned many blacksmiths in the Banshu region to produce his swords, and Banshu Hamono is one of the blacksmiths still living on. 

The blade is forged from Japanese "ao-hagane" blue steel & folds into a solid brass sheath. The traditional higonokami utility knife is known for its sharpness, portability, durability, & ability to be re-sharpened for decades.
