Michihamono Industrial Co.,Ltd.
Michihamono is a carving-knife manufacturer with a long history, located in Miki City, Hyogo Prefecture, known as the home of blade-making in Japan.
Originally a subcontracted manufacturer of sickles used for rice harvesting and weeding, we transformed ourselves into a maker of carving knives to keep up with the times.
We offer a wide range of carving knives for everything from professional use to those appropriate for schoolchildren. We make carving knives and other hand tools for a wide variety of tasks, from the carving of Buddhist statues and masks used in Noh drama to Kamakura lacquerware, woodblock printing, seal-engraving, and eraser-stamps.
What makes us special?
- Good blades start with good steel
- We take pains to forge the perfect steel for carving knives.
We select the highest quality steel from among high-speed and cutlery steels.
- Blade quality depends on tensile strength and hardness
- To make sure we use the hardest and toughest steel that will not break or bend, we source our high-speed steel from a manufacturer that specializes in heat-treating steels with furnaces.
We also rationalize the production process as much as possible to achieve a consistent level of quality.
- Trusted craftsmanship
- We develop new products based on the needs of our customers.
We also aim to maintain our fully-stocked inventory so that we can provide any of our products at any moment.
