Banshu Hamono

It is believed that in the Banshu area of Japan's Hyogo prefecture the blacksmith industry started a long time back when a Katana factory was built there. Initially, in 1744 the industry started off manufacturing straight blades; now it involves a variety of items such as traditional straight razors of Japan, utility knives, floral shears, pruning shears, and gripping shears that are used in Japan for severing thread. Each modern product is meticulously handmade by expert craftsmen who employ the same techniques that have been used for generations.
