Since being appointed by the domain of Tsugaru to make Japanese swords, Nigara Forging has a history of over 350 years.

As one of the few noble swordsmiths in Japan, Nigara homono has continued to preserve this art. The making of swords has been abandoned as a business item since 1965, but the same forging techniques such as welding and hammering have been kept alive in the making of kitchen knives since then.
