Located at Cutler Sanshu is the Seki Hamono Museum, a place that introduces the manufacturing process of Japanese swords, kitchen knives, and nail clippers that are made in Seki. The facility is equipped with a forge where one can view, and even experience hands on, traditional Japanese swordsmithing for an extra cost (reservation required).
In the store you can find their in-house Seki Yoshihide Brand kitchen knives and scissors, as well as cutlery from a wide range of other local manufacturers all available for direct purchase.
