Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer with Mickael Moing

 ~ Direct from the Maker ~

I have seen a knife similar to this recently sell on another well known website for $295

 This is a traditional utility folding knife, what we may call a Friction Folder, the Europeans once called a Penny knife, if Forged the Japanese refer to it as a Higo-no-Kami.  


This entire knife, the Blade and Integral Handle was Hand Forged by Mickael    

The blade is easily opened using the exposed Tang (that folds back into the handle when open).  


The Blade was Forged from 1085 and given a Differential Heat Treat with Visible Hamon which leaves the Edge Hard the Spine Softer.  Mickael also incorporated Copper and Brass into the exterior of his work for amazing artistic effect. 


The thick Integral handle with abstract Natural Pattern is one of a kind!


This knife will appeal to anyone who values true hand made tools with a rich history.  

A Robust, Hand Crafted Traditional tool with wonderful artistic attributes. 


This is the Actual Knife that you will receive!
