Established in 1968, our company proudly produces and dispatches around 1.8 million metal cutting saws and machine blades annually. Our primary clientele includes professional artisans like plumbers, electricians, and waterworks specialists, but we also cater to general users through hardware stores and online platforms. In alignment with the emerging trend of DIY enthusiasts, particularly among women, we conceptualized and birthed a product encapsulating the essence ""From tool box to living room."" Our vision was to craft a saw so aesthetically pleasing that it wouldn't seem amiss in a living space or kitchen. We designed the grip to comfortably fit the hands of women and children. Additionally, our focus was on ensuring it was safe to store and transport. Despite its elegant design, the blade boasts professional-grade specifications, adept at cutting a plethora of materials, from metals like aluminum to plastics, resins, and wood. Now, items like old steel shelves, wardrobes, toys, or rusted poles can be efficiently resized for easier, cost-effective disposal. Moreover, our unique blade attachment mechanism, which doesn't rely on screws, has been patented. This product has garnered numerous accolades, including one from the Japanese Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry. We also partner with major hardware stores, mass merchandisers, and department stores both domestically and internationally for OEM engagements across varied products. For further details, don't hesitate to reach out. Our customers have often extolled our products, showering us with 5-star reviews on our e-commerce platform. (Example reviews: Great sharpness. Even the weakest person could cut through wood with ease. The sawdust didn't fly off. An excellent product. My friend also tried it and was amazed. /I bought it to cut branches in my garden. I live in the countryside and there are many different kinds of trees, and I was getting tired of putting so much effort into it. I did not have high expectations, but when I tried it, it was easier than usual and I was able to finish cutting a lot of branches in a short time. /I bought it to do DIY projects with my grandchildren. It's great to be able to spend time with my grandchildren and it looks so cute! /This is the best knife cutter I have ever bought! I have bought and used many knife cutters in the past, but I have never found one that I am satisfied with. I was not so sure about this one either. I was not sure if it would be as good as I thought it would be, but it exceeded my expectations. I wanted to cut down some trees in my yard, and I started by cutting down some autumn leaves (which were soaring up to the second floor), but it was over in a flash. I will never be without this saw again. Thank you for providing such a great product.)
