The handle is made from Walnut wood and the blade is made using a special 420J2 Japanese stainless steel that is rust resistant with one side having serrated edges and the other a smooth, sharp blade.

Hori Hori Care: Clean the blade after each use until dry. Use camellia oil if possible and store in a dry place.
Asano Mokkousho was founded in 1950 in the Tsubame-Sanjo area of Niigata Prefecture (famous for its metalwork) by Teisuke Asano, the son of a farmer, after his marriage to Sakae Sasagawa, the daughter of a Tokyo manufacturer. This union of rural and metropolitan values would prove the linchpin of the new company.
All our products are based on Teisuke’s wish to make farmers’ lives easier with his tools, and Sakae’s love of nature and her desire to help others who shared this love.
