HOMEPRODUCTSCONTACTS

Since ancient times the eastern region of Shimane Prefecture has been famous for producing Japanese iron and therefore the blacksmith skill and technique have been refined. Kaji Kobo HIROMITSU has been a blacksmith using the tatara (or a pair of foot-powered bellows) iron making method since the start of its operation in 1830s, where it has strived for forging cutters, small farm equipment, and domestic utensils besides producing wrought swords. Owing to this, Kaji Kobo HIROMITSU later won the finest honor of the sword production in Japan.

Then on, while inheriting the method of making wrought swords, we at Kaji Kobo HIROMITSU have been producing new types of craft that are made of tama-hagane (i.e. specialized steel used to make Japanese swords), Japanese iron, or ordinary iron, thereby preserving the forging technique, protecting the beauty of iron crafts, and inheriting the iron civilization and technique of Shimane Prefecture.

Without getting involved in today’s easy craft boom which appeals to sell formative designs seen in common, we take great care to create our products one-by-one by using the same technique as what has been passed on to us and by minimizing the chances of weld jointing or machining.

We believe that the wrought product of HIROMITSU would satisfy anyone seeking a “genuine article”, as it keeps changing its texture with the flux of time.

In Shimane Prefecture the home of Izumo mythology and Japanese iron, we aspire to be a workshop of creative lighting equipment who will not only restore lighting equipment made of iron whose producing method was passed on from ancient Japan but also offer beauty and utility that are needed for ever-changing modern living.
