  • The "project tsuba" finally saw the light, with nearly two years of preparation, development, coordination and research. The two artists / artisans involved in the project can realize any kind of kodogu according to any request concerning materials, styles or details. The tsuba are made by forging and machining traditional Japanese, simple or complex, in iro-e, sukashi, takebori etc. Some of the tsuba are made ??visible on the website page dedicated to the koshirae.
  • Following the withdrawal of the deposit from a customer we decided to keep it on the pieces for which it was paid. The pieces in question are therefore partly already paid! We hope to turn a problem into a way to combat the crisis.
  • Kiseru special! The whole collection of kiseru is now on sale. You can find them on the portal page dedicated to kiseru with a 20% discount!
