The history of Kyoto knives began when skilled blacksmiths moved to the area following the establishment of the capital in the Heian period. The area was blessed with an ideal environment for knife-making, with access to soil from the area around Fushimi Inari Shrine for tempering, high-quality water, and other raw materials available nearby.

Kyoto Cutlery "Yoshisada" is one of the few remaining Kyoto blacksmiths, with a history of over 300 years, inheriting the name of Fujiwara no Yoshisada, a resident of Yamashiro for generations.
They are used by many Kyoto craftsmen, including chefs, for cutting the ribs of Kyoto fans, tatami mat knives, and garden scissors.
