Since the Edo period (1603-1868), the forging and hardware industry known as Banshu (in Hyogo prefecture, Japan) began long ago as a Katana (sword) maker. Each sword, carefully handcrafted, has stood the test of time and remains an exceptional instrument.
Banshu Hamono was originally a family business from this region and this history of craftsmen. After having started by producing swords, the company launched into the manufacture of kitchen knives. It then expanded and today manufactures a variety of products including utility knives, traditional Japanese razors, Japanese scissors used for wire cutting, pruners, flower scissors and various gardening tools.
Each piece is painstakingly handcrafted by skilled artisans using the same techniques that have been employed for generations. For about 250 years, various new designs have been created to meet customer needs.
