Founded in 1912,
we are a general wholesaler dealing mainly in specialty hardware
from Ono city and Miki city in Banshu.
Ono City in Hyogo Prefecture, known as the Banshu region, has prospered as a town of swordsmiths since the days when it was ruled by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. In the Edo period in the 17th century, people in the area began to actively produce razor blades, scissors, kitchen knives, and other household cutlery for farmers’ side jobs and the home industry. Eventually, the specialty smithing that developed from these side jobs took root as a local industry in Ono City.
We pursue the wellbeing of all employees both physically and spiritually, and contribute to the progress and development of society by providing high-quality products and services.
