The hardware industry that deeply roots in Banshu (Southwest of Hyogo Prefecture) since a long time ago is said that it originates from the casting of Japanese swords.
The industry began by producing razors as one of the cutlery's daily necessities, and today, various cutlery are being produced. Specifically, Banshu's production volume of grip scissors ranks first in Japan.
Please enjoy Banshu's cutlery, each completed with care through craftsmen's hand works.
Thank you for the beautiful scissors and yudofu shakushi. The scissors is perfect, so slimline and sharp. I was worried it might be too big but the size is great. It also came in a beautiful wooden box wrapped in cloth. The yudofu shakushi is a work of art. It is a standout in my kitchen and used daily! Thank you also for working around the difficulties with shipping in the covid19 environment. I really appreciate all your efforts.

Banshu Hamono Chef Kitchen Scissors
Kiyotsuna Chef Kitchen 200mm, a knife introduced in NHK’s TV show “Ippin” as “kitchen scissors of magic.” It is designed to not slide while cutting crabs and frozen foods. Unlike knives, there are no worries about cutting your hands. The circle near the blades could be used as a corkscrew, which could also be used as a nutcracker. The product will be wrapped with Banshu Fabric and packed in a paulownia box, recommended as a gift.
Having 250 years of history, Banshu Hamono ranks first in the production of knives. Their production originated from the making of Japanese swords, and even now, their products are handmade, each individually, through the traditional blacksmithing work.
