Over the past century, Kanzawa has kept its tradition and reliability for four generations and continues to create professional tools that satisfy craftsmen around the world.
The tradition was started in Miki, well known as one of the oldest town of blacksmiths in Japan, by the founder Kanzawa Daikichi who was born to a blacksmith family. In 1895 he gathered a group of craftsmen to start ‘KANZAWA WORKS’ and begin producing original saws and pruning scissors as well as drills and agricultural machineries.
Kanzawa became one of the few export tool manufacturers in Japan in 1950. Expansive Bit and Punches were introduced and the know-how has become regarded as ‘Kanzawa Original’ around the world. The company holds numerous patents and design awards.
