Blacksmith Skills Brought to Gardenware 

The art of forging in Niigata, particularly in the town of Sanjo, has a rich and storied history dating back to ancient times. The term 'forging' itself finds its roots in the act of repeatedly striking and shaping iron, a practice that has been integral to the region's identity for centuries. Renowned across Japan as a hub for hardware manufacturing, Sanjo has been honing its forging techniques since antiquity. Evidence of this legacy can be traced back to the Palaeolithic period, with notable milestones such as the production of Japanese nails during the early Edo period marking pivotal moments in the region's industrial evolution.

Over time, the expertise of Sanjo's blacksmiths has continued to evolve, with their craftsmanship extending beyond traditional tools to encompass a wide range of high-quality gardenware products, including clippers and shears. Today, the techniques passed down through generations of artisans remain at the forefront of Niigata's forging industry, blending time-honored traditions with modern innovation. As a result, Sanjo continues to be celebrated not only for its historical significance but also as a leading producer of finely crafted garden tools sought after by enthusiasts and professionals alike.
