Industrial Tourism in Japan
Established in 1805, Izumiriki's kitchen tools have been in the hands of home cooks and professional chefs. Based upon the traditional technique, we keep trying new technology to manufacture the best kitchen knives that fulfill the high requirements of the pros.
At Izumiriki Seisakusho, visitors can see the process of "sharpening and straightening a blade," "fixing a handle to a knife," and "engraving a name on knife." Also, if visitors request, they can see the forging process.
