My sticking to

The point that I am careful about on producing it?


It is not a thing a decoration watches a picture or the work of art in the distance, and to enjoy. However, in the case of tweezers, it is different. The visitor who bought it really uses it. Then hair falls out properly and is ordinary. When such a price becomes the expensive product, it becomes higher if, in addition, the demand is more natural. When several hundred of them have product, that they are strange, the trust of the visitor comes off. Therefore there does not seem to be only it, and one one of them is product, a premise to fall out by all means carefully.

I am same as the making of Udon and Soba. I ”will not crawl of great deal of effort (I worked it out) which I put it and made”! With such a feeling, I beat several hundred times and always aim at the strong, exact finish.

Do you seem to have the after-sale service stolen?


From thought to say to take responsibility to the thing which oneself made, I carve one’s name to a product. I repair it in free (※) even if I use it how many years if the condition of the point of a sword becomes funny. From grandmother to a grandchild, I am glad if I can hear lines to use it from generation to generation in parent and child three generations (laugh). I think that it is not at all a high price for a long time if, no, I think about being usable throughout the life.

※The postage of the visitor burden you.

Finally is there the message?


Though they were written on the book which they read before, ”the tweezers” seem to be the only cosmetics invented in Japan. On investigation Seishonagon writes the poetry of tweezers, and there is the picture about tweezers in the book of the ukiyoe print and. Do not you think that you are very interesting? The world of tweezers (laugh).

Producer's profile

Is it a motto? Mmm, it is an effort.


When rhythm is good and knocks on the stainless steel board which I cut into long pieces, hard stainless steel changes form in no time.

It ”is core in stainless steel”. Though should thin a part to bend most; longtime perception of the neighborhood. Kurata who talks so while laughing. Begin to help with business from the junior high school era; is 50 several years by this year. A soul dwells in the work of the builder with the disposition.

In 1997, I received commendation as ”Arakawa Meister” by the high technique and prominent skill.

I accept a many school excursions student from the whole country to be able to stream down the pleasure of the monomaking of in the next generation while I concentrate power on developing guidance / upbringing and open an experience classroom now.

A local junior high student visited the Kurata by an on-site training the other day. Wave a hammer; and within one minute junior high student said [an uncle! I was tired.] Kurata says when [I do not succeed if I do not make an effort unusually to learn a job to an arm to study to become the player of sports].

Words, the effort that craftsmen of Edo book closing a bargain tweezers like. The thought that a brain fell to somewhat performed it. The Arakawa meister fights with stainless steel with a hammer today.
