Sanjo City in Niigata Prefecture is known as the town of craftsmanship. As Daiya carefully completes the plane iron, sharp-edged planes are being made.
The box is made of beech, a bright and airy material often used in Scandinavian furniture. The box made by scraping out a solid wood has no seams and has a smooth texture. It has a compact and beautiful shape, which even feels comfortable when placed on a table.
Daiya suggests a completely new way of using the sharpener: to place it on a table, sharpen as much as necessary, and sprinkle right then.

Yamatani Manufacturing Company, founded in Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture, in 1946, works on the production of plane stocks, the wooden part of the plane, as their principal profession. As craftsmen who make bases of planes for carpenters are called Daiya, they named their brand ("Daiya") as it is.
