Steel coloring and stainless black coating
Founded in 1939. Started as a manufacturer of medical tools and scissors in Oku-cho, in Tokyo's Arakawa Ward. After relocating to Sanjo post-WWII, they shifted the focus of their operations to manufacturing scissors for farmers. While maintaining their traditional methods, they strive to meet the needs of today’s customers. During the festival, they will hold a flower arrangement workshop that utilizes their preserved flowers and scissors.
