Cap't, thank you for the great writeup.  I can imagine this folder must be very popular in its golden days, where many school boys would have one on each them, like a pair of pants.

You must remember the pencil knife we had in elementary school, or was that not in HK?

When I go to school, I vaguely remember pencil knife is still ok when I was in primary school, but it was frown upon(or even banned) when I was in highschool. 

The funny part is, the school do allow students to carry razor sharp cutter for art/craftsmanship class, which usually is way sharper than the pencil knife(since no one knows how to sharpen properly).   ::) :D

I must've had 10+ of those since I kept losing them, they aren't sharp to begin with and I had no clue how to sharpen anything. I only remember them during my early elementary school years, since we were switched to fountain pens in grade 3 or 4.

I suppose you could use it if you are determined, but I've tried it and many others, always come back to Vic Climber after a while.  :P


I am in no way saying it is the best option, but it is actually useful for most cutting tasks.

On a separate note I did not get a chance to give them a "face lift" when I was at my friends house.

You don't have a file? Or some sandpaper?  :think:

I had been doing some reading and apparently these do not sharpen well on anything short of a Japanese wet stone. Anything else will cause the blade to chip from what I read. Time will tell though. I will have to sharpen mine eventually.

Not to sharpen, to clean up the spine and jagged edge.  ::)

I thought you quoted Jzmtl for some reason. Yes I do, but I have no where to do it and I do not really want to do it inside my house.

No we were talking about a cheap knife from the 80's that somewhat resembles higonokami, cost a couple of cents each I think. Literally everybody had one in his pencil case.

Great writeup!  I was reading that the other day as I want to learn more about it's history from another forum, and thinking the choice of background is artful and interesting 'cards' collection, here you are posting the link.  :D
