Baba Cutlery Works

Baba Cutlery Works was established in 1916 and since then, we keep producing kitchen knives to satisfy professional chefs, using traditional techniques and newly devised methods putting ourselves in the user's position.
We supply our knives to specialty stores, department stores, and through online stores.
Our motto is "sharp knives change the taste of food."
At Baba Cutlery Works, visitors can see the process of "sharpening and straightening a blade," "fixing a handle to a knife," "engraving a name on knife." Also, if visitors request, they can see the forging process.
