These axes draw on the toolmaking lineage of heavily forested Niigata, hand made in Sanjo Niigata at the Mizuno Seisakujo works under the supervision of dentoukougeishi blacksmith Isao Mizuno. These are forged tool steel treated to offer both toughness and good edge formation.

It is important to note these meant to be used against stones or with excessive force, while not excessively hardened their edges are harder than many western axes and will not tolerate misuse.
