Historical Significance


The Japanese Samurai sword is world famous for the strength, cutting ability and quality of it's blade. At the end of the 18th century, Shogun Tokugawa assembled some of his master craftsmen and focused them on making surgical instruments. Experience handed down from craftsman to craftsman, TAKAYAMA is the surviving entity from those ancient artists in metal fabricating. Today, TAKAYAMA is the only company that can provide a superb concave side-face sharpening and making cutting edge similar to those swords that were integral to Japan's development as a world leader. TAKAYAMA is honored to preserve the quality first produced by the ancient craftsmen.
