Carving Tools / 彫刻刀


Michihamono is a carving-knife manufacturer with a long history, located in Miki City, Hyogo Prefecture, known as the home of blade-making in Japan. Originally a subcontracted manufacturer of sickles used for rice harvesting and weeding, we transformed ourselves into a maker of carving knives to keep up with the times.

We offer a wide range of carving knives for everything from professional use to those appropriate for schoolchildren. We make carving knives and other hand tools for a wide variety of tasks, from the carving of Buddhist statues and masks used in Noh drama to Kamakura lacquerware, woodblock printing, seal-engraving, and eraser-stamps.
