The Superior Labor x Nomado Store Higonokami & Pen Case is the perfect embodiment of our philosophy and of TSL's.
Handmade in Superior Labor's workshop near Okayama, the Case is the result of a joint creative exercise. Designed to be portable and practical, it is fitted with a classic Superior Labor Brass Money Clip on the back to allow you to clip it to your inside pocket, Traveler's Notebook, etc.
We decided to include a beautiful Mujun Fuji Higonokami knife with every case. Standard Higonokami knives can be pretty “pedestrian”, cosmetically-speaking. The Mujun Fuji knife is handmade by craftsmen in the traditional way but with seriously upgraded looks.
'Fuji Knife' is a multipurpose foldable knife, which is both functional and beautiful; when folded, the engraved handle and blade form a drawing of Mt. Fuji from a famous view in Miho peninsula. The end of the solid brass handle is a bottle opener. The high quality double-edged blade and the brass handle ensure that you will get years of use out of the knife.
The knife is perfect for sharpening pencils, craft, gardening and just about any other cutting need you may have on a daily basis.
TSL used the finest Japanese leather from the Tochigi tannery for this project, it is smooth and supple but robust and will last for years. The leather is undyed and will darken progressively to a cognac colour.
Perfect for use on your Traveler's Notebook.
The brass clip and popper are untreated and will acquire a beautiful patina with time.

This set includes both the case and the Higonokami knife!
Pen and Traveler's Notebook not included. This knife is not a weapon and we absolutely do not recommend using it as such! The knife is not to be used by children, the blade is very sharp.
Product care (knife):
- cleaning: mild detergent and water, wipe immediately after rinsing
- apply a thin coat of oil to the blade and hinge, this will help prevent corrosion
- always wipe the knife when damp, do not leave it submerged in water
- sharpen when necessary
