Cutting tool manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company can manufacture a wide range of cutting tools, so we can apply the technological know-how from those special cutting tools (razors, medical knives) to other products. The tips of our razors and medical knives are accurately controlled according to micron-level orders from customers, and realize a sensitive degree of sharpness. Our original surface reformation technology realizes hard, smooth blade edges. 

[Representative's message]
Our corporate philosophy is to deliver “better products to more people.” This phrase has been passed down from the founder (my grandfather) to my father, and then to me, to be reflected in the products we deliver to our customers. Our company, as a high-quality, reliable manufacturer, our general home-use product distributor, and our networks in North America, Europe, and Asia will continue to deliver better products to more people. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have dedicated sales departments for each type of cutting tool, which allows the department to respond to various offers using their expertise. We have multi-national staff who can provide careful and detailed support for overseas customers. Inquiries received by the sales department are materialized as an organized project team consisting of planning, product design, and production technology staff members. Delivery dates are managed by the production management department when the project enters a mass production phase, and quality is controlled by the quality assurance department. All these efforts are performed to ensure that products are delivered to our customers with stable quality, and within the period we promised. 

[Market share/Ranking]
Our safety razors, kitchen knives, and nail clippers have acquired a large share in their respective domestic Japanese markets.
