「 淺野鍛冶屋謹製 靴箆 / AsanoKajiya handcrafted shoehorn 」
Sword forging, a traditional Japanese technique proud of Seki City in Gifu Prefecture, has continued since the Muromachi period.
Since ancient times, swordsmiths have made swords in the hope of "Tenka Taihei."
The craftsman trained for six years and spent about 20 years learning swordsmithing and mind.
In 2012, he held a public training session for Japanese swords in France.
He has also interacted with blacksmiths, curators, and researchers from all over the world, and continues to improve his skills.
Last year, we realized a project with Asano Kajiya, a sword smith with whom we had been acquainted for some time.
This time, we continued to use the serial number of the item and asked them to produce it again.
The Shoe Shop and the Swordsmith
Businesses that don't usually have contacts respect each other.
A shoehorn engraved with baking, stamping, and stamping by a swordsmith.
We repeated trial production in search of a curve and weight that fits in the hand.
It's because of the overflowing age of things.
We think it's interesting to have unnecessary things.
This is the second time we have been asked to produce this product.
We produced the same long type (55cm) and short type (19cm) as before.
