Maple Knife

A Modern Classic
We refined the pocket knife down to its simplest form, built around a single-piece core of machined stainless steel wrapped with domestic maple. Inspired by the classic Japanese Higonokami design, the Grovemade Pocket Knife is held closed by friction, and held open by placing one’s thumb on the end of the tang. Each knife is individually packaged and wrapped in distinctive heavyweight matte black paper and ready to gift. Made entirely in the USA.
