The spirit of an iron smith lies in his single-minded focus in steel forging, unafraid of shattering fire
sparks and oblivious to his burning skin.
Until some ten years ago Aizu used to be a place where a number of such smiths practiced their skills they acquired from their masters specializing in sword making. Tsutsumi Production is one of the few foundries that have continued to produce such agricultural tools, hoes exclusively.
The craftsman mentality our ancestors passionately prized is still kept alive in our factory where each step is meticulously checked and evaluated throughout the entire procedure. At work with the same spirit as those who use our hoes, we painstakingly handle each and every single hoe toward our best finishing touch.
As we know that “iron with use glows bright”. Our forefathers’ shining spirit is the daily reminder to follow their creed and to further search for betterment.
