About Our Woodworking Tools

Japanese woodworking tools are available in a wide range of qualities, from very inexpensive to very expensive. While other suppliers accept the offerings of large Japanese export firms, we obtain our woodworking tools from small tool merchants specializing in tools only from the very best master toolmakers. As a result, our tools are used by highly respected craftsmen from all over the world. When you use our tools, you will immediately recognize the difference in your work. They are a pleasure to use and you will quickly appreciate the investment in quality.

About Our Cutlery

There exists in Japan a class of cutlery for which there is no equal anywhere else in the world. Following centuries' old traditions, a dwindling handful of blade smiths produce a class of knives the famous author Suetso Yanagi describes as "objects born not made". Unrelenting training, self-discipline and adherence to the strictest standards limit their production to a few pieces per month. We are pleased to offer these fine crafted kitchen knives, which are used by respected chefs throughout the world. When you use one of our kitchen knives, you will immediately savor the difference in your cooking. They are a pleasure to use and you will quickly appreciate the investment in quality.
