Minimalist Knife

Simply Elegant
Inspired by the classic Japanese Higonokami, the titanium minimalist knife has crisp lines and refined angles. The solid titanium handle is incredibly strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant. Each knife is engraved with the elemental symbol for titanium, Ti, to denote its value.

The minimalist knife is held closed by friction and held open by placing one’s thumb on the end of the tang. The raw machined marks are clearly visible, hallmarks of the unique manufacturing process.

Made the Hard Way
The titanium minimalist knife is constructed using a unique monobody that’s custom machined from a solid block of titanium. Rather than the standard sandwich method of knife construction, we chose to pursue our radical build design—it’s much harder to manufacture a knife this way, but the result is wonderfully clean and simple.
