TOJIRO Japanese style knives

Tojiro knives History

Many local cities in Japan have been flourished by developing their unique culture and technology. The background of this development is the long lasted feudal society ruled by monarchs during Edo-period (1603-1868), under which every feudal lord had to come and live in Edo (present Tokyo) for one year in turn to show his loyalty to the Shogun. The feudal lords brought and offered their local quality products and traditional culture when they visited the Shogun to obtain his admiration and eventually his support to their local territory. In order to do so, it was quite important for the feudal lords to encourage their local people to enhance the quality of their goods and culture.

Tsubame-Sanjo, where the Tojiro factory is located, was one of such provincials. Tsubame-Sanjo used to be the Japanese sword producing district and our predecessors had studied and improved their technique over several generations. It has been then passed down to the present and transformed as cutlery manufacturing technique.
The spirit of offering quality products to Shogun is however unchanged even today, but it is now to our customers instead of Shogun. It is our honor to have an occasion to offer our products packed with the latest technologies to our customers around the world.
