The Banshu region in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan is famous for blacksmithing that started with a Katana factory and straight razors (around 1740). Now this area manufactures a variety of products including utility knives, traditional Japanese straight razors, Japanese gripping shears used for cutting thread, pruning shears, and floral shears. Each piece is painstakingly made by hand by skilled craftsmen using the same techniques that have been employed for generations.
