over 90 years In Seki, the Japanese center of the blade production
Seki is a very famous city for the production of the cutting blades with an 800-year history originally from the swordsmiths for katana, a long, single-edged sword used by Japanese samurai.
Such craftsmanship and spirits related to the sword making, which create strong and sharp edges with a unique smithing method called Seki-den, have been handed down over many years from generation to generation, making Seki known as one of the world’s top three centers of blade production, along with Solingen in Germany and Sheffield in the United Kingdom.
